I love this dog friendly beach in Carmel, California

I was surprised and super delighted to find that Carmel-by-the-sea is extremely dog friendly. Here’s my experience photographing the happiest seaside pups of at a charming dog friendly beach in Carmel.

Which Carmel beaches allow dogs?

One dog friendly beach in Carmel is Carmel Beach City Park on Scenic Road. It’s a very long stretch of beach and easily accessible with street parking.

Borrow a pup?

If you love dogs but don’t own ’em (like me), that’s OK! The ones I met let me jump in a game or two of throw and retrieve. Here’s a snap of my two favorite Carmel beach dog buddies, a terrier + black lab…

Plus their dog friend…

Before long, there was a whole beach party…

Dogs remind us that life can be really simple, fun, and free. This quote sums up these playful Carmel beach dogs perfectly:

“A dog can’t think that much about what he’s doing, he just does what feels right.” ―Barbara Kingsolver

If you make the trip with your pup, I hope you enjoy this dog friendly beach in Carmel as much as I did.
