A word of caution if you visit in the summer. If the sand is too hot for you to walk on, it is

too hot for your dog. Carry a smaller dog to the water. For a large dog, booties are readily available at local stores, or put infant socks on the dog just toget past the hot, white sand.


There are several off-leash dog beaches in San Diego and each has its fans. The oldest dog beach in San Diego is in Ocean Beach. Located at the end of the San Diego River Floodway where Voltaire ends, it is a favorite of many, both locals and visitors. There is lots of free parking and it is readily accessible. When you and your happily exhausted friend are ready to leave, there are outdoor showers to rinse feet, both yours and the dog’s.
