  • Magical spot on the coast very close to central San Francisco. Civilized walking path above, or walk down to the beach, it’s all gorgeous. Not too crowded when I’ve been there. Dog friendly as hell! (...  more »
  • The beach is very spacious and serenity. Especially the people who took their dogs and came out walking together seemed a lot. To feel their slack.

  • When I visited the people I met were very friendly. It’s a gorgeous area. Bring water for yourself & your dog, along with bags to pick up your dogs waste product. Let’s keep this area beautiful!
  • An off-leash dog paradise! The best dog beach in the area, hands-down. The last bit of path down to the beach itself is pretty steep, but worth it! We're from out of town but will definitely visit again next time we're in the area.
