DM’s North Beach – Affectionately Called “Dog Beach”

Del Mar’s North Beach – Affectionately Called “Dog Beach”

North of the beautiful beach houses on Del Mar beach you can find North Beach (a.k.a. Dog Beach).  North Beach is located at the mouth of the San Dieguito Lagoon, the streaming water acts as a natural barrier between Dog Beach and the rest of the beach.  Del Mar’s dog friendly attitude makes it the ideal place for dogs and dog owners to enjoy their time.

Dog Beach is located north of 29th street and continues a half mile to our border with Solana Beach.  Many Del Mar and Carmel Valley residents can enjoy the “no leash required” aspect of the beach on days after labor day and June 15th, and the dogs get a lot of exercise running around and interacting with other dogs.  Dog Beach is also a popular beach-volleyball recreation area with several courts available for those who enjoy playing.  There is parking available at Dog Beach for a small fee or you could find free parking further south, at the start of the residential area.

The beach is located directly in front of the Del Mar fairgrounds where, during the summer, you can see the giant Ferris Wheel from the San Diego County Fair and the great fireworks displays.  Helen Woodward Animal Center hosts the Surf Dog Surf-A-Thon and Beach day on Sept. 8th at north beach.  This event is committed to helping orphaned dogs find permanent homes; contestants participate in 20 minute heats based on the dogs’ weight class.  Del Mar’s North Beach is a locally famous and popular destination for dogs and dog owners, to chat with fellow owners and catch a Frisbee as a wave crashes beneath you.

Carmel Valley San Diego Community | Santiago Benito | Junior Creative DirectorName: Santiago Benito

School: Canyon Crest Academy

Dream: Santiago hopes to one day become a documentary film director and producer.  He also hopes to write and make Hollywood films.

Interests:  He enjoys reading almost as much as he enjoys writing; my favorite book is The Life of Pi by Yann Martel.  Santiago have had an interest in the art of cinema ever since he could remember.  From an early age, Santiago has been mesmerized by the beauty of the lines said and the actors on the big screen.  While many kids have a hard time trying to figure out what they want to do after they get out of school, Santiago knew right off the bat that he wanted to be involved in the world of cinema somehow.  Aside from that, he enjoys playing basketball and spending time with family and friends.  In addition, Santiago is very interested in being involved in things much larger than himself.  For example, he is a part of many non-profit organizations whose goals are to help people and communities all over the world (i.e. Japan, Africa, and the Untied States).

Journey: He was born in San Diego on August 14, 1998 and has had a wonderful life growing up in the Carmel Valley area.
