  • Great place to watch sunset and hundreds of birds on and near the rocks. You can also see otters, seals and sea lions and whales offshore. There is a gazebo for weddings and other affairs.  more »
  • It's a nice Cliffwalk with great views of window rock. Many pelicans were observed on the rocks. Situated on the 101 and is a nice little break. Take advantage of the parking at the Dinosaur Park or simply Park along the road or roads.

  • Walk down to the shoreline for a different view! You will see cliff sides full of pelicans, even babies! Enjoy the caves, tide pools, crabs, sea stars, clear water, sounds, salty breeze, and conversat...  more »

  • This small beauty should not be over looked. Just down the street from Dinosaur Caves Park, this small patch of grass houses a gazebo that over looks the ocean. To the left, large rocks covered with pelicans and other birds. However, the real treasure is to the right, below the cliffs. A short walk to your right leads to a set of stairs that leads down to the beach. Supposedly tide pools reside in the area, however I think we came during a higher tide and were unable to see them. The area was gorgeous and almost adventurous looking. Great spot!
  • Awfully nice park up against the cliffs near BBQs playground equipment and picnic tables. Beautiful views of the ocean here
  • If you go to the right of the park, there is a staircase leading down to the beach where you'll find some caves, several tide pools, and tons of hermit crabs all along the rocks!!! We also saw some seals sunbathing! We were hoping for starfish, but didn't see one.
  • Gorgeous views, scenic overlook, tons of birds, grassy areas, perfect for the entire family.
  • This cute tiny little beach park is right between Dinosaur Caves & the Conservancy Beach area. There is not much here, except great views. Beach access via stairs (& at low tide) is about a block down, but is not apart of this park. Some people get married at the little gazebo on the grounds. This park is one of many small or large beach parks all along this area. Many are popular with locals & surfers. While this one is cute, it is more for tourists that also stop at DC Park. It is good for a Pizza picnic from the nearby Del's Pizza. BTW- watch the UV & steep drop here!
