ETIQUETTE & RULES
-Obey leash laws when in place.
-If you let your dog off leash, it should respond to verbal commands.
-Pay attention to your dog at all times so it does not bother other park visitors.
-Clean up pet waste so it does not wash into and contaminate the water.
-Do not bring any dog that is not up to date with vaccinations, especially puppies, to the beach.
Dogs can have as much fun at the beach as we humans do, and our furry friends drool at the mere thought of a sandy swath of land where they can run unfettered by the chains of oppression we call leashes.
San Diego offers a few seaside spots where Fido can run, jump, frolic, fetch and even surf without having to worry about the law.
Coronado Dog Beach
100 Ocean Blvd., Coronado
For scenery, it doesn’t get much better than this. The leash-free dog area is at the north end of the beach adjacent to the Naval Air Station. This is one of the better places to teach a dog to surf, and lessons are available.
Del Mar Dog Beach
Camino Del Mar, Del Mar
Tail-waggin’, Frisbee-catchin’, stick-fetchin’ types will revel at North County’s only dog-friendly beach, as long as their owners can follow the somewhat convoluted rules.
At North Beach, from 29th Street to the Solana Beach border, dogs are allowed off leash from Labor Day through June 14 and on leash the rest of the year.
At Main Beach, at the northern end of Powerhouse Park to 29th Street, dogs are not allowed June 15 through Labor Day and are allowed leashed from the day after Labor Day through June 14.
At South Beach, from Powerhouse Park south to Torrey Pines border at 6th Street, dogs must be leashed year-round.
Off the SeaWorld Drive exit from Interstate 5, use East Mission Bay Drive
Bird-watching, jogging, jet-skiing, too. But one of the biggest attractions at the relatively uncrowded Fiesta Island is that people can bring their dogs anytime to run around off leash, romp in the calm waters and chase balls as they please.
Ocean Beach Dog Beach
W. Point Loma Boulevard and Voltaire Street, Ocean Beach
One of the most popular and famed dog areas in San Diego, this canine playground fosters a laid-back social atmosphere, where dogs and owners alike chase tail. If the dog gets soggy and dirty, no worries; the Dog Beach Dog Wash self-service dog bath is just down the block (7733 Voltaire St.).
