With dramatic views of the Pacific Ocean and the eponymous military
installation, the Fort Funston Beach Walk is a superlatively scenic spot
for walking your dog. After a hike down from the 200-foot-high sandy
bluffs onto the beach, you and your best friend can play fetch, take a dip
in the water or frolic with the other pooches.
For a more secluded stroll with your pup, travel further North to
Kehoe Beach in Tomales Bay, one of the only pet-friendly beaches in
Point Reyes. The journey to the beach—with its wildflowers, mustard
plants, and other four-legged beach bums—is an adventure in itself.
Long stretches of sand are great for playing fetch, taking a walk and
sniffing out new friends, making the beach a great spot for a highenergy
hound who craves a break from the concrete jungle.
