This park is absolutely beautiful. It’s probably one of the most incredible places I’ve ever been to. more »
Amazing beach! Both the dog and our toddler enjoyed the time here. It was a little chill so we didn't go into the water (the dog did), dogs can be off leash! We were there early and found parking, but it was full by the time we came back to the car (weekend in August)
Love this park along the coast. We took the short hike from the parking lot to the beach. This scenic and easy hike leads down to a smallish bay with excellent views of rolling waves. There are benches, picnic tables, and bbq/fire pits overlooking the beach. Lots of surfers frequent this spot, which adds to the fun of wave watching. Busy, but still a peaceful spot.
