Hands down all time best beach in Cali. Ample parking (with a hike/shuttle), food for purchase close by, rocks to explore, great sand, great waves. Simply the best. Been going there all my life.

Nice beach park, multiple entrances off of the PCH. Has some good tidal pools if there at low tide. Enjoy

We went as a group to paint. It was a perfect place. Good food available, family friendly location, and a clean beautiful beach.

Great place to hike. We did the "strenuous" path...almost 9 miles and 3 hours long ( we were fast). Hike was well marked. Some areas of narrow paths that could be intimidating, but mostly large paths with steep inclines and declines that show up periodically....More

This is a very peaceful place to sit and watch the waves or to walk breathing in the fresh air. It costs $15 for the day but worth it to help preserve the natural area. It is so close to local shopping and eating places,or...More

I would call their office and ask questions. It would be a fun stay. I don't know how long the wait list is for cottages. When I go there this week, I will try to find out more info.

No, there isn't. Although there are many different types of facilities within the State Park so some may.
Where can we find a map of the trails? Can we bring the dogs?

Dogs are limited to paved trails only, so it's somewhat limited. There is a long paved trail atop the bluff-- we walked it at Reef Point a ways. Nice views, punctuated by the occasional poop bag dispenser/garbage can, but... More
