We were roaming PCH and found this quiet little beach. I believe it was quiet because you have to pay for parking and if you try and get the free parking, which there’s not much of, the trek down can be a little tricky. Once...More

A good place to spend an hour or so; if you're looking to spend the day at the beach, you're much better off going to Zuma Beach (which has lifeguard stations, restrooms, outdoor showers, seasonal food stands, and lots of parking.

Such a nice beach! You have to walk down a cliffside and there are no amenities, but, boy, if you want a beach to yourself this is it.

Very scenic and secluded. It is not uncommon to see sea lions and dolphins. It is a strenuous hike up to the parking lot but well worth the scenery and seclusion. The Eastern side of the beach has a few caves that you can crawl...More

areas it resembles the French Riviera with its lush,
green hillsides descending into crescent-shaped
shorelines. In others, it feels 100% Southern
Californian with beaches wide and flat as a football
field, and often crowded with beach-goers lounging on
