  • Visited late afternoon in April. We were disappointed the beach hike was closed due to pupping season. Highly recommend this spot during the season when the beach hike is open.  more »

  • Great sights. Strong winds. Wish there were better trails though
  • Totally amazing coast line. Well worth the time and effort. Leave at least 2 hrs to explore.
  • Really nice but small state park with great views of the ocean. Except for pupping season, there is access to the North Beach. Otherwise, just access to the South beach, with a few tidepools.
  • So perfectly scenic. Everyone will enjoy the great viewed and crashing waves. The park has many bathrooms too and well marked trails.
  • Long steep stairs for Great Grandma. Beautiful place. Nice view. Fresh sea air braze. Sometimes you can see whales & seals. Bringing binoculars helps.
