Dog Beaches in Ocean Beach, Coronado and Del Mar
July 15, 2013
Is your pooch getting antsy? Let’s be honest, when isn’t your dog antsy to get outdoors and prance about! Do yourself and, of course, your four-legged friend a favor and head to one of the designated dog beaches in Ocean Beach, Coronado and Del Mar.
Watch tail-waggin’, Frisbee-catchin’ and stick-fetchin’ dogs splash in the surf. Man’s best friend is permitted to roam leash-free at all hours of the day on these local beaches–check them out:
