Huntington CA Dog Beach

Huntington Dog Beach is right off the Pacific Coast Highway (PCH) in Huntington Beach California.  The whole point of the beach is your dog can run around off leash.  It is pretty much the only decent beach in the LA / Orange County area you can do this.  A few tips:
  • Bring quarters for parking (currently $1.50 an hour, so don't bring 4 quarters and think you're good)
  • Come early if you want to park close (this means before 10) otherwise be prepared to park 1+ miles away
  • There are two lots, but they fill up fast and people hover for spots creating a long line
  • The best thing is to throw your bike / scooter / skateboard in back of your car, drop your kids off then find parking wherever and ride to meet up
  • There are only two bathrooms, which usually have 4-5 people in line, so plan ahead
  • If you don't have a dog go to the main beach (Huntington beach...), which has more bathrooms, more parking, and shops close by
  • If you get tar on you, it comes off with nail polish remover, it won't just wash off
