Please note: dogs are not allowed at Monterey State Beach North of the Monterey Beach Resort hotel. Dogs on leash are allowed at Monterey State Beach South of the Monterey Beach Resort hotel.

Several beaches under different jurisdictions run together here, so make sure you and your leashed dog don't stray out of the area between Wharf No. 2 and Seaside State Beach.

This is a good people-watching beach, and a favorite for surfing, fishing, scuba diving, kayaking, kite-flying, volleyball, beach-combing and tide-pooling.

To get there, take the Seaside exit off Highway 218, west of Highway 1.

Help us keep this beach beautiful and dog-friendly:
• Always follow the posted rules
• Respect natural marine life and habitats
• Be aware of tides and currents
• Pack in and pack out, leaving only paw prints

There’s nothing like the sight and sound of the sea to soothe the soul, vanquish boredom and revive the spirit. If your pup has been seeing far too much of the back yard lately, maybe it’s time for both of you to sniff out new horizons along the highly scenic, 122-mile stretch of Highway 1 between Pacifica and Carmel. more »

Monterey County boasts one of the most beautiful coastlines in the world, from Watsonville in the north to famous Big Sur in the south. On the north side of the Monterey Peninsula,  several beaches run together to form Monterey State Beach, popular with guests at adjacent hotels. Make sure your canine companion is leashed when walking here, and don’t stray out of the area between Wharf No. 2 and the Seaside portion of the strand, where dogs are not allowed. more »
