Known by the locals as "Dog Beach," Coronado's North Beach is the only beach in town where dogs are allowed. Owners must bring their pups on a leash, but once they reach the designated area, they can set them free to splash in the waves, work on their tans and socialize with the other canine surfers. North Beach is the northernmost part of Central Beach. It's located at the end of Ocean Boulevard, near Sunset Park and the Gate 5 entrance to the navy base. North Beach is also the only section of Central Beach that offers fire rings for evening bonfires.
