Other Notes:

This is a beach, located just past Avila towards the piers. It's not really a registered dog park, but dogs are welcome here as long as they behave. Off leash beach and it's fabulous. Lots of space to run, sometimes see occasional dolphin. Free parking. Can be crowded on the weekends.

By far....the best dog beach!

Otto and Sugar know when I make the turn off that it's beach time. They love this beach and can't wait to get into the waves and play ball. Each visit (45 min each way) is so worth the drive. We spend a good couple of hours there.. The big plus is that after, we can go into the town and find refreshments. Very dog friendly community.

Leash free

Off-leash is allowed-- the sign says "dogs must be under control", but does not say leash required.
