Huntington City Beach
Huntington Beach City Beach is located between Beach Blvd on the South up to Seapoint Street on the North near Bolsa Bay. The beaches to the North (Bolsa Chica) and to the South (Huntington State Beach) are part of the California Department of State Parks and managed by the agency. Camping is allowed from October 1 through May 31 at the Sunset RV Park at the parking lot off of PCH and 1st Street just South of the Pier for self contained RVs only (no tent camping here) and dogs are allowed at the RV Park, but not on the sand and must be on a leash. The HB City beach is home to the Huntington Beach Pier and to Huntington Dog Beach which is North of 21st Street all the way to the end at Seapoint Street - a very dog friendly beach complete with several standing dispensers with "dog bags" to make sure that you pick up after your pup properly and keep the beach clean.

The HB City Beach is also home to the Huntington Beach Junior Lifeguards. About 1100 kids between 9 and 17 years old sign up to learn about ocean and beach safety, physically demanding activities, lifesaving first aid techniques, discipline, respect, ecology, and take field trips to learn about the ocean.

Parking at the beach is $15.00 per day max in the off peak season and up to $17.00 per day during peak season (Memorial Day through Labor Day) and on holiday weekends it is $20.00 and for the 4th of July holiday it is a flat rate of $27.00. There are plenty of restrooms and concessions available along the beach, if you forget to bring your own food and beverages or firewood. Most of the concession stands sell firewood so you may enjoy using one of the over 200 fire rings at the beach for a bonfire or toasting some marshmellows by the ocean. The dining options become more numerous towards the Huntington Beach Pier area such as Kokomos, Dukes, and other great restaurants.

Among the activities at the Huntington City Beach, there is the HB Bike Path which stretches from Huntington State Beach to Sunset Beach on the North end, so bring your bike, roller blades or skateboard to enjoy cruising along the beautiful Surf City coastline next to the ocean. There is a walking path next to the bike path that you may also enjoy strolling along the bluffs and people and surf watching at the beach. The surf is also excellent at Huntington, so grab a wetsuit and a surfboard and enjoy the waves.
