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.

This had to be one of America's best beaches. The waves lapping at the shore. Seagulls flying overhead. The sun shining bright. The only thing missing is a warm ocean to dive into. Yes, the water is cold and not for swimming. But lie back...More

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.

Love the beach, the trail, the quiet surrounding... we walked and ran there several times a day. If you want relaxation, this is the place.
