  • This was a bathroom stop. It's hip with local surfers (very friendly) Clean little potties. Stunning views. Great pit stop, free of charge  more »
  • We walked quite a ways to get down to beach and did enjoy watching the multitude of surfers. However, the beach is full of boulders and not a good one for walking along shoreline.  more »
  • This was one of my favourite beaches on our trip from LA to San Fran. Parking was easy, the beach was wide with lovely soft sand, and the waves were fun to splash in. Loved our day on Rincon Beach!  more »

  • Great place to.camp to split up the drive from/to San Diego. Wttw... Enter from the north past spots if heading north. High surf/high tide, the low spots your rig may get hit by waves... No fun
  • Pacific Coast Starliner train ridw through the area spectacular scenery for 300 miles. Stunning
  • Dude, it's the Pacific Ocean, the best ocean there is and you park along the road and can just sit and stare at it, and just be in awe. Don't get much better.
  • OMG was paradise. My hubby brought me there for my 40th bday. We stayed at a local airbnb and it was amazing. The people in PR are so friendly and everyone speaks English. I had a wonderful time soaking up the sun on the beach! The food was delicious and it felt so peaceful. It was truly Island time there. We didn't have any plans, each day we played it by how we felt. And we rented a car, drove around sight seeing and felt completely safe. I will be back!
  • We went to Rincon Beach today and I was not happy. My foot was full of nasty oil tar! My foot was dark and sticky. Not coming back
