Seabright

The Seabright neighborhood in Santa Cruz offers plenty of dining, lodging, entertainment and activities for locals and their guest to enjoy! Located off Seabright State Beach and overlooking Monterrey Bay, you and your pooch can take a hike to the beach and catch some rays. While dogs are allowed off-leash here, there is a beach patroller to notify people when the tide is coming, and at that time your dog needs to be on-leash for their safety.
