Not enough parking but go in the early evening to enjoy fabulous sunsets on a great beach that goes for miles.

Off HWY 101. There is a small parking area good for around 20 cars so I suggest getting there early. We arrived around 11am and were at the last spot (Sunday morning). Or else you can park along the area where you see fit. You...More

We wanted to start our day with this trail and the beach below. We had a hard time finding the pull out off the 101 and ended up missing it. We looked for it on the way back to our campsite later that afternoon and...More
