Awesome views and you can walk at your leisure or take an exercise walk. Great wildlife and dog friendly. Beautiful! more »

Perfection takes time. Enjoy!
Nice but no dogs allowed
This place is so fun! My kids love hunting for unique rocks here. Definitely have to wear shoes or your feet will hurt.
Perfect place to recharge yourself and maintain social distancing. Love the boardwalk and the rocky beaches. Lots of Inns along PCH 1 and a few great restaurants. Dog friendly neighborhood.
Whether its sunrise, sunset or night time, its just so peaceful and beautiful here. I cant wait to come back.
