Bolsa Chica State Beach is a popular place for surf fishing for perch, corbina, croaker, cabezon and sand shark. Also popular is in the summer is bare-handed fishing for California grunion, a species that only spawns on sandy southern California beaches. The Park is located in Huntington Beach and extends three miles from Sunset Beach to Seapoint Avenue. A bike-way connects it with Huntington State Beach, seven miles south. Wildlife and bird watching are popular. Across the road from the beach is the Bolsa Chica Ecological Reserve, operated by the California Department of Fish and Game.
This trail is nice & open with plenty of opportunities for photos. Lots of bird wildlife to observe. I didn't give myself enough to complete the whole route, but I'll be back soon.
Make sure to bring a jacket, the breeze right off the beach can chill.
Great place for a stroll and wildlife viewing. You can spot rays and fish from the bridge, and herons, egrets and pelicans are often spotted in the ponds. Flat, level and stroller-friendly. Parking lot is small, so bare that in mind if arriving midday or on weekends.
