Great views and easy hike. If you want a challenge go down each of the beach access trails and hike up. Bathroom access and The Beachcomber is there to quench your thirst.

Was a nice, hilly scenic walk. The view from the bluffs is amazing and you can walk your pup with you. If only they allowed dogs on the beach though!

Came here for sunset and it was really beautiful! Nice walk on the beach and not very crowded. Be sure to explore all of the rocks! there are some really neat shapes and patterns.

A great guide. I want you to do more of these like for the San Joaquin Hills and Santa Ana Mountains. I recommend an additional stop to be added to your Crystal Cove guide-- that would be the emergent shore benches correlating with the marsh benches in back bay which, according to Lisa Grant's paper, were thrust up one meter during a 7.1 earthquake 300 years ago possibly experienced and noted by Portola while he camping at Tomato Springs, a great narrative for laymen to appreciate.
