We parked at reed point and started the bluff trail. I wish we would had gone down to the beach straght away. The upper trail is black top and hot. The beach is great. The sand is hard so walking in shoes or hiking boots like us is fine. Plenty of rocks in the water to explore at low tide. walk done to Crystal cove and have lunch on the beach at the Beachcomber. Good food. In between access to the beach there is very few people, you have the beach to yourself. Great day

Great route for kids. Especially with the destination being a strawberry shake at Ruby's.

This was a beautiful beach to visit everything in nature was perfect my only complaints were they charge you $15 to park and the showers don't even work so you have to brush the sand off of yourself in the bathroom it sounds like a whole Lotta nothing for $15 and the tunnel leading to the beach was poorly maintained

Great views and easy hike. If you want a challenge go down each of the beach access trails and hike up. Bathroom access and The Beachcomber is there to quench your thirst.

Was a nice, hilly scenic walk. The view from the bluffs is amazing and you can walk your pup with you. If only they allowed dogs on the beach though!

Came here for sunset and it was really beautiful! Nice walk on the beach and not very crowded. Be sure to explore all of the rocks! there are some really neat shapes and patterns.

Not really a hike, it was a nice easy walk along the shoreline. I took my 9 year old daughter as part of a Girl Scout merit badge requirement and she loved learning about our local geology. Even I at 40 learned new information! I definitely recommend this walk if you want to learn some great information while taking a leisurely stroll along the beach.
