  • It is great to have the area near the cement ship open again. A great place to walk the dog and meet good friends.  more »
  • This is a local favorite for getting out for a walk, you have Monterey Bay as the backdrop for this beach but look closely and you will see otters, dolphins, sea lions, and many types of birds. And if...  more »
  • Don't pay $10 to park. Lots of free parking available if you look. It seemed like lots of locals walking their dogs or kids playing on the beach. The pier is shut. If you park on top of the cliff be p...  more »
  • I've loved this beach since I was a kid. As the boat disintegrates it just becomes more beautiful.
  • Back in 1967 when I was just a kid you can actually walk all the way out on this ship and go fishing it's sad that you can't get on it anymore time has taken its toll if you know when the stripers are running this is a fantastic spot and even if they aren't you just never know what you're going to catch I used to sneak out on this Wharf at night when I was a teenager to go catch sharks which you can still catch sometimes you never see it it would just take your line and you have to cut it or lose it fantastic memories here
  • NICE! Better than Santa Cruz because there are few hippies and pretentious rich asswipes. The people are generally nicer and the beach is less crowded. There is a $10 parking fee. Get there early to park in the lower lot or you have to walk down and up the stairs with all your stuff. There is RV camping, but no tent camping. There is a small pier where you can fish from. The SS Palo Alto is off the end of the pier. There are picnic areas and barbecues for you to cook. Bathrooms and water to rinse your feet are there too. There is a small cafe where you can get coffee, water, sodas and burgers. The view from the top of the cliffs is really nice while you sit at the benches.
  • Very alive beach with people having fun there. I like to enjoy the sunset view on the pier.
  • Geeat beach, beat thencrowd % see the.concrete ship. Park on beach level if open. Steps from upper lot are a long qay down.
