• Ocean Beach Dog Beach, San Diego County. Ocean Beach, in the community of the same name, is quintessential Southern California—surfers, bikinis, lifeguards and all. In the “dog-run,” four-legged visitors tear around sand and surf, adding to the carefree vibe. (Leash rules apply elsewhere on the beach, so keep an eye on the signs.)
It’s not the only off-leash beach in the San Diego area. Off-leash dogs are also permitted at Coronado Dog Beach, at the north end of Central Beach; and on the beach at Fiesta Island in Mission Bay. For info on other beaches where dogs (leashed) are allowed, click here.
