This beach features soft and clean sand that is perfect for taking walks with your pup. It also offers undisrupted views of the sunset! It is a beautiful place to take a picnic dinner, some towels, and dogs toys and make a full evening of your trip to the beach with your furry friend.
At the back of the beach away from the water, you will find large boulders that make a makeshift wall to protect the stunning homes and condos that sit right on the beach. It is always fun to look at these pretty homes while enjoying the sound of the ocean. You will find restrooms at some access points on this beach, ample parking lots, local restaurants and shops to explore, and a pier as well. However, you are not allowed to take your dog on to the pier.
We must note that dogs are not allowed on all parts of South Imperial Beach. Dogs are allowed on the beach area that is south of Imperial Beach Boulevard and north of Palm Avenue. You cannot walk your dogs through the middle ground to get them to the dog-friendly areas. Even in the areas where dogs are allowed, they must wear their leash at all time, also when they are in the water.
Bring your own poop bags as well, since there is no guarantee they will be provided for you. Always remember to clean up after your pup finished their business and threw it away. You want to keep the beach clean and sanitary for dogs and humans alike.
