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.

Sketchy, always worry about my car.

5/23/18 The OP’s trail actually trespasses on some agricultural land and doesn’t offer very much in terms of views, but it will spit you out at the river mouth and you can follow that around to the beach. You’re better off just walking over the dune to the beach when you park and enjoying this for what it is: a beautiful, secluded beach. I walked south all the way to Bennett Slough and the fishing levee. My dog loved chasing birds and swimming in the low tide. The beach is littered with dead jellyfish, especially by the river mouth—thousands or at least hundreds upon hundreds! I did see a seal, or possibly an otter, at the head of the river.

Dogs not allowed.

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.
