Continuous sandy coastline for many miles in both directions. Neither too crowded nor too desolate. Clean and safe to go barefoot. If you walk N to the end of the bay you can climb the stairs, turn left, and walk along some nicely wooded tracks to the beach town of Capitola.

manresa beach trail is a completely joyous hiking trail, the look, smell, taste of the ocean made for a great ombiance and for suffering from a stroke 12-28-2016 it was perfect for my first hike of the season
