Stinson Beach, California is very dog friendly, but you need to go to the right part of the beach

The Southern part is controlled by the NPS and isn't dog friendly. The Northern part is a county beach, and is dog friendly.

It's the exact same beach--there's just an imaginary dividing line down the center!

Visiting with a dog is easy. Just park in the North parking lot and enter towards the northern part of the beach.

There's white sand, calm water, and lots of other dogs. Your pooch will love it!
