Ocean Beach is located in the community of Ocean Beach. This is a wide beach, approximately one mile long, broken up by several rock jetties.

Dog Beach, San Diego's only 24-hour beach for dogs, is a sandy area at the north end of the beach. This is a dog run area where dogs are permitted without a leash at all hours of the day.

Dog owners are responsible for control and clean-up of their dogs. Standard dog laws apply on other portions of Ocean Beach and are strictly enforced.

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
