  • A great beach for families whom need a little escape from the city. It's a little hidden gem.
  • Dope place to come and chill. Not too sure about the rules on a bonfire but that would be awesome if it was ok to do that. Other than that, this beach is a little ways away from any stores so bring whatever you need before heading over. Cheers!
  • The road was closed but we hiked in. The cove protects from the harsh wind making a fire easier to light.
  • This is one of my favorite beaches in Marin. Great place to visit on warm winter days. Amazing for pictures.
  • Really beautiful place to go and enjoy with family, also nice place to take pictures
