Ocean Beach

Ocean Beach

Ocean Beach in San Francisco is the widest and longest expanse of sand on San Francisco’s shores, extending from the Cliff House to Fort Funston along the Pacific Ocean, and is adjacent to Golden Gate Park.

This is a great place to sit or stroll, fly kites, and fish the surf. Occasionally, it’s warm enough to lie in the sun. Dogs are allowed off-leash on Ocean Beach except from Sloat Boulevard to Stairwell 21, where they must be on leash.leashes are required. Dogs need to stay under voice control to avoid disturbing the endangered Snowy Plovers that nest here.

The water at Ocean Beach is notorious for its strong currents and fierce waves, making it popular—but dangerous—among serious surfers. Be careful with your dog here – there are undertows that can take you can your dog away.

There is a large free parking lot on Sloat Boulevard, and also street parking on the western edge of the Sunset neighborhood near the Great Highway.
