    I have seen dolphins and whales right from the beach. Great for families. The beach is very long and great for taking walks or just lounging around.  more »

    Good fishing spot, lots of fun for the kids and family. Love the fact that there's a spot for a quick bite or fishing needs. Also good place for a jog either up and down the stairs or on the 1.5 mile strip. Or show up early and win a bbq pit with a table.

    Such a cool beach. I went to the Visitor Center and had the pleasure of meeting Amy, one of the workers. She allowed me to watch a short film on how the cement ship got there. Amy was so sweet and wonderful. Love this beach and just hope they can get it to stay.

    Grew up going to Half Moon Bay, Capitola, Santa Cruz, but Walking out on the dock to the boat at Seacliff is the best. We would play on the beach all day then camp at night at the State Park camping grounds. Love the California Coast

    It's a nice long beach. Famous for Santa Cruz. Crowded on beautiful warm days. Many sitting areas for picnics or BBQ.
