A great place to relax and explore the beach and tide pools.

This is a great beach to relax at with the family on the weekends. It can get a little crowded, especially on a holiday, but it wasn't bad when we went. Best to go in the late spring and summer months when it's sunny and warm out.

Bathrooms at the parking lot and tables to sit and eat. 

On the left side, you can walk around and look at the tide pools. If you're feeling adventurous, you can climb the big rock on the right, but be careful and not venture too far out. The waves can get ya! Lots of opportunities to take great photos. 

Just before this beach, there is another popular pullout on the right side. You can't miss it because many cars fill up that area; it's in the eucalyptus forest area near a turn. If you are lucky and find parking, hike down and out towards the ocean. It's about a 5 - 10 min. walk/hike that's easy to do. You'll pop out first onto sand and then walk on a rocky tide pool setting. GREAT place to catch the sunset and explore little critters in the tide pool area.  It can get cooler in temperature out here, so if you're looking to catch the sunset, bring a light jacket. Some people also surf out here, but they are no beginner.
