Rosie's Dog Beach, Long Beach Reviews - Write a Review
It's no fiesta island, the waves can get pretty strong.... But the boys enjoy it. There's a one dog per human policy, so be aware of that. A few times someone was ticketing. Also BEWARE... Apparently baby sting rays chill in the sandbars in waist high water... The hubs got stung in the foot. I've also seen some ghetto dogs, so just be on guard. Plenty of parking, they are currently redoing the lot, so it's free for now.
This is the coolest and best location to take your dog of any place I know of in the South Bay area. You can run and play with your dog on the beach with NO LEASH and be completely within the law. My experiences have been positive there so far and the pet owners love it, but especially your dog will Love it. Nice beach and water, seems to be well maintained.
Please don't come here if you don't want to get sandy. This is a DOG beach. Yesterday a man shoved my dog's head in the sand and told her to "go away" because his husky tackled my medium sized cattle dog mix onto their cooler. He was upset that my dog got sand on his cooler. People like this need to leave. Would you go to a dog park, sit in the middle and have a picnic and expect a dog to not jump on your stuff? She didn't do it on purpose. Other people saw it and couldn't believe it. OTHERWISE 95% of the people here are great and don't mind a little sand and water.
This is wonderful dog beach and we are so grateful to the people that made this experience a reality. It is about 2-3 city blocks wide. More when the tide is low and the guards aren't on duty. The surf is always gentle due to the protective breakwater. Until 12.31.17 there's construction underway in the parking lot. Access to and parking for the dog beach has been changing on a week to week basis during the construction. There are public bathrooms and wash up amenities close by. Most people handle their dogs responsibly. Occasionally there's a fool that has to be told to manage an aggressive animal or one that gets too excited. There's a Dog Beach sign that lists protocols & policies. It is open until 8 pm. A dog collar light is suggested after dark to keep track of fur babies.
This may very well be my very favorite place in the entire State of California. Imagine a place where everyone is laughing and having a great time with their pets. Dogs running and playing fetch having a great time. Flying kites having picnics. Watching movies on the beach some evenings. I can't even remember a beach I've had more fun at. There is a lot of work going on in the parking lot right now but that's a minor thing. I am happy that they are improving the parking situation. I love this beach. I recommend it to anyone that is in the area or anyone in the entire State of California that has a dog.
