Twin Lakes Beach requires that you and your dog enjoy the sandy paradise leashed, please, and requests that you both stay on the east side of the Santa Cruz Harbor to avoid meeting up with beachy guests who are less than dog-friendly (we don't understand it, but we respect it).
The Twin Lakes Beach is mere walking minutes away from shops and restaurants (some of which are dog-friendly establishments), but we don't imagine you or your canine companion will be all that interested in leaving the beach once you're all settled in.
Twin Lakes Beach has restrooms and showers (both indoor and outdoor, so your dog can shower and rinse off too), drinking water available (so your pooch won't get too thirsty if you forget their water), and offers plenty of space for swimming, surfing, geocaching, exhibits, programs, and more!
What's better? You and your pup can enjoy many of the hiking trails that are available at the Twin Lakes Beach in Santa Cruz, California! Just remember to bring along your own doggo poop bags in case your pup needs to use the restroom - they won't have them available and you'll need to ensure you clean up after your pup! The last thing a beachgoer wants is to step in a surprise from your dog!
