The beach is a popular fishing area, featuring perch, kingfish, sole, flounder, halibut, bocaccio (tomcod), jacksmelt, lingcod, cabezon, salmon, steelhead and occasional rockfish. The beach features the Pajaro River estuary, where a natural preserve has been set aside. The sandy beach is also popular with bird watchers and equestrians. Horses are only allowed near the waterline. Swimming and water sports are hazardous because of strong rip-currents.

Beach walk. Sea otters, sea gulls and sand.

Tried to go today at the last 100 yards of road is completely flooded and the beach inaccessible unless you bring a kayak.

Super nice beach!! Very quiet and hardly anyone there. I don't exactly think its a hiking destination as its flat and open, but more like a flat easy nice walk.

great the beaten path.

Great surf fishing.
