Beautiful beach, impressive waves

Asilomar beach is a beautiful beach. The sunsets are especially impressive. There is also a nice small boardwalk through the dunes.

From the dunes to the lapping waves to the giant borders, this is a FUN beach to walk and play on! I am a Hawaiian native, so that speaks volumes!

We walked for miles along Asilomar State Beach! At every turn, you have a magnificent view of God's creation. So pleased we took the time to take in the view, made our trip that much more attractive and romantic

My husband and I love to explore walking trails and the best body surfing beaches. We discovered this beach has high surfs that competent surfers can master. This is also a dog friendly beach with great expanses of sand for dogs to play happily. We also found tide pools just north of the beach that have huge sea anemamies populations.... More

In the trees behind the beach. It was a perfectly Tolkien-esque morning. The butterflies love the pine, eucalyptus, cypress trees that litter our beautiful coastline.
