  • Well this beach is nice but not the largest. There a lot of people here at this beach, but beautiful just the same. The parking lot wasn't the best being flooded and muddy, but the view at the top of the trail was worth it. Hiked to the cross which was a steep muddy climb. But at the top we saw such a great view of the ocean and even spotted some whales.
  • I love this place and this town. Such a unique and beautiful place to visit.
  • Awesome stayed at b&b by the water with a great view.
  • My favorite beach in NorCal
  • Very magical place
