Carmel Beach

In early morning, canines of every make and model can be seen romping happily on the sugar-soft sand that graces a beach set just below the ninth hole at world renowned Pebble Beach Golf Links.

Carmel Beach is one of few beaches in this part of the state where it’s legal for your dog to run free, and DogTrekkers come from all over the country to take advantage of the privilege.  The mile-long strand is within walking distance of the romantic village of Carmel-by-the-Sea, one of the most architecturally unique and dog-friendly towns in America.
