  • Lovely beach....looks like they rent kayaks but were not open when we were there. A long scenic pier to walk along. We walked the beach and found some great rocks....almost as good as Moonstone Beach! 
  • 不管你是往舊金山方向還是往洛杉磯方向,只要你走一號公路你一定會經過這裡,這裡離赫氏古堡(hearst castle)非常的近,我建議可以大概下午3點的時候來這裡,把你的三角架準個好,這裡很適合拍排日落及海灘,我是十月初來的遊客不多海灘很乾靜。 
  • Lovely beach, good toilets. Lovely pier with fab views of gorgeous sunsets, amd lovely views of san simeon. Free car park
