Heisler Park is the place to spend a day by the ocean. The park is on the cliffs above the sea, and from there you can easily access the beach below.

Many artists flock to the park to draw inspiration or display their talent. Pets are welcome, and you'll see plenty of people walking their dogs.

    Parking can be a bit challenging but that's expected at any beach. They have a nice BBQ area that is right next to restrooms and the path down to the beach. An excellent beach to have a BBQ at. Tip: bring an umbrella if you plan to BBQ at the grills. They have holes in the table/benches to place them in. I also saw some others pitch up canopies right over the table as well. The path is very steep so I don't recommend strollers down to the beach but otherwise this is a beautiful park with spectacular views!

    The most beautiful views of the ocean and the Pacific you can imagine. Plenty of places to sit whether that means have a picnic or soak in the scenery. Street parking is metered here and it gets busy in the summer. The beach is kinda small and secluded. If you can get here on a day when it is not crowded it is amazing!

    This place is my favorite place to picnic. It's a good way of not getting sand in your food (it's grass) but had the benefit of being a short distance away from the waves and tide pools. A couple of tips: this place has applaud worthy views of the sunset; also, the parking meters aren't enforced after 7pm ( there is a sticker on them with this information) so don't bother paying past that time.

    Great spot. I live just up the street and I love seeing the energy of the families who visit Heisler. Very international, all colors and creeds. Highly recommend.

    Great ocean views along a beautiful pathway. Some awesome sculptures as well. Lots if picnicking going on as well. Great morning at the park.
