The picture above is Leo Carrillo State Beach, a dog-friendly beach located about 30 miles north of Santa Monica. Here leashed dogs are permitted almost everywhere aside from the space between towers 2 and 3.
Dogs are allowed on a maximum 6 foot leash, and must be accompanied by a capable handler. Do note that dogs are not permitted in the tide pools. Additional signage at the beach itself will provide more details.
This dog-friendly beach is one of only two in Los Angeles County, making it a bit of a gem for dog lovers in the Los Angeles area who wish to take Fido à la plage.
The exact location of the beach is 35000 Pacific Coast Hwy Malibu, CA 90265. Call 805-986-8591 for more information or map it.
