Large, sandy beach with tide pools and a bench you can walk to that has a nice platform and views of seals. Part of the hike in has a boardwalk which makes it an easy walk.

I nice stretch of the legs after driving North on PCH from Monterey. This stretch of PCH has some great sea cliff overlooks. Excellent Road Trip.

I did not start at the trail's head, but from a pulloff at Ross Road...I hiked around here solo for about 4 hours, and saw not one person...it was truly amazing...Bull male elephant seal was bobbing around at one point and making lots of noise..saw many hawks and harbor seals too...I love the wooded walkway at the end of the dune area, it feels nice to lay there at the end and relax and have lunch...beautiful place...good seaglass too by the way...found a stopper and some large turquoise chunks
