A truly beautiful part of the West Coast of California. This is a protected area and many varieties of sealife can be seen on any given day. 2073

It is one of the most beautiful beaches of California offering a lot of activities to tourists with a classical touch of ancient heritage. 17 Mile drive within a driving distance is an added advantage.
