  • The prospect of Nice, the beach full of driftwood, "Restrooms" run away, pointless rules allotment-style: RV were mt on the way to the dump on the miles distant neighbor campsite sent despite free hook up sites, telling-off, because the zip awning loomed a few centimeters in the footpath; completely unentspanntes park staff, for it but very (!) nice fellow camper. Nevertheless honor not to be recommended.

  • You can walk freely along the sand near the water or on the paved sidewalk. Whales, dolphins, and sea birds are often seen very close to shore. You can picnic and spend the day, or just an hour or so....  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.
  • Nice views. Good water and and quality. Enough people without being crowded
  • 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.
