Pet friendly beaches including "leash free" at Carmel Beach
One of the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen is also the most dog friendly.
Dogs may run free and play in the waves without being on a leash. They must be on leash, however, to and from where your car is parked. The entire town of Carmel is dog friendly with many stores furnishing bowls of water near the door. Dogs must be on a leash while walking in town.
