An absolutely breathtaking walk on low tide. Sea Anemones and Star Fish all around the exposed rocks. Beautiful!!!!!!

Cool beach! The river spits out right at the beach. Some good rock climbing, and dogs are welcome. Can get a little breezy.

Went on Memorial Day weekend. Pleasant day with lots of families and their children playing in the little creek. Lots of surfers disappearing around the rocks on the north side. I'd like to got back when it's less busy explore the cave and walk north around the big rock. Parking was a bit of a challenge with that many people there.

Very pretty beach with a cave, rock-climbing and perfect surf. Great place for dogs and kiddos too! If your feeling extra adventurous, wonder down there in the evening climb a few rocks and stargaze. You will not be disappointed!

Beautiful beach with awesome rock features including a cave. A great place to star gaze when the fog is clear.
