  • There is no question this is a beautiful beach. With a view of Trinidad Head, the expanse of the Pacific Ocean, the dunes and beach as far as you can see, it's one of the wonderful places vacationers ...  more »

  • The county has neglected to properly enforce dog laws pertaining to leash/voice control and cleaning up. The county has also not cleaned up hazardous rusty nails after I reported them. Furthermore, the county's wooden boardwalk has fallen into disrepair, is wobbly, and has holes that could cause serious injury. If the county were not so negligent with a) enforcement and b) maintenance, this beach would be a good, but it isn't.
  • It's a place of beauty and majesty. Beautiful beach settling, cave, plenty of hikes and activities to offer. Great for the family, dogs and everyone to enjoy. Let your weird hang out a bit and have a good time.
  • Everyone should run bare footed thru the sandy beach at least once. The sound of the waves are so relaxing and calming.
  • Really nice Beach, plenty of shells and things for the kids to find.
  • Camping on the beach with your dogs is the best.
