California summer time is a great excuse to go to the beach with your dog. A beautiful day with gentle waves and a cool breeze is just what you need to get you and your pooch out of the house.
Summertime is a good time to visit the beaches of Orange County. Southern California summer temperatures are generally in the 70s and 80s, so you can go out and enjoy the sun while you relax. You can see some of these beautiful places on this map. The OC Coast has many sandy beaches, such as Santa Monica Beach, Newport Beach, Seal Rocks Beach, Encinitas Beach, Huntington Beach, and more.
Orange County is known for its dog friendly ocean beaches. Dogs are allowed in the mornings and evenings in Newport Beach and Laguna, but Huntington Beach is perhaps the most dog friendly of them all. California summer time is the best time to bring your pooch to the beach, as the sun is out and the water is warm.
If you are looking for a pet friendly hotel near the beach, consider the Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach Resort & Spa. It is located in the heart of the city on the corner of Pacific Coast Highway and Newport Beach Boulevard. The resort is nestled in a quiet residential neighborhood and is just minutes from the beach. Dogs under 50 lbs are permitted. You can review their pet policy on their website before booking your reservation.
