Description
The 21st Avenue Beach, or Corcoran Lagoon Beach, may not be as well known as the other beaches in sunny Santa Cruz, but this local beach is pawfect to bring your pup for a day in the sand and surf without the crowds. Also listed as Moe's Beach on some maps, you'll find this furrific stretch of sand along East Cliff Drive, between 20th and 23rd Avenues, where the Corcoran Lagoon overflows into the Pacific Ocean. 

This wide beach has a multiple access points off of East Cliff Drive, but parking is limited. Since there aren't any nearby parking lots, you'll need to park on the street, either by permit or parking meters. Permits can be purchased at the Parking Office in Santa Cruz, and range from residential parking permits to visitor permits. Weekend beach area parking requires a permit. During busy times, come earlier in the day to find more available parking.

Most days, the beach is large, with lots of space for you and your pup to stroll the sand, splash in the waves, or lounge in the sun. When the lagoon overflows, the beach can drown and lose much of its dry surface. Be sure to keep out of the water when this occurs in case of possible contamination. Check the weather and pass on rainy days. If you go at the right time, this beach is a pawsome spot!

Since the beach offers no amenities, including human restrooms, be sure to pack your beach bag with all the essentials. Clean drinking water to share with your pup is a must. Have clean-up bags on hand, and always stoop and scoop. While visiting, your dog must remain leashed on the beach, and in the water.

For a woofderful time in the sand and surf, check out the Corcoran Lagoon Beach with your beach pup!
