    The cement stairways leading from the parking lot down to the sand are numbered, starting with 1 on the north end (closest to cliff house). Dogs are allowed off leash from stair1 to 21; on-leash south

    It's beautiful here! It's consistently a view you can't beat. It's dog friendly and fire friendly at specific times of the year.

    Pro: it is good for recreation. Good for flying the kite. Good for 🏄‍♀️,kite boarding, body surfing etc. Con: Super cold year round. Conditions not so pleasant. Sand flying around. Tickling.

    Going for a walk is always nice, be warned though the closer you walk to cliff house the more liable you are to find broken bottles and needles

    I'm a bit beach-spoiled since I grew up here, so Ocean Beach is a little boring to me! But it's a short hike to some more picturesque spots on Land's End.

    Come watch the sunset, walk along the shore. If you like taking sand dollars or shells, think about picking up trash for a change :)
