This is one of best kept secrets. Below normal temperatures, but the best sunsets knows to woman, and man. We go there often to reconnect as a family, but mostly as a couple.

Wonderful time to get away in the winter, 1st one on the beach and its all yours with the waves and sand at your feet. Seeing pelicans and sea lions along the water. Collect shells and enjoy your leisurely time before the crowds come.

Great spot close to the Bay area and silicon valley to drive to and walk along the beach with not a lot of traffic during the week and nice spot to just sit and listen to the waves.

My husband can not climb up hills and this beach has a staircase leading down to the beach. It was clean and had very few visitors. Quiet and peaceful place to watch for dolphins and whales.

A lovely beach for a walk, lots of shells to look at along with many birds and a few seals. Was quiet the day we were there with just a few other people on the beach.
