This is a beautiful beach. We were bored of going to Santa Cruz beach wanted to try a new beach, so we found this beach 10 mins south. This big is massive, clean and beautiful. We went twice after the first time. We also enjoyed playing in the water a couple of times which was not so cold in the afternoon. The waves and nice and strong and definitely a paradise for surfers. Last but not the least don't miss the beautiful sunset if you come here. It becomes a overwhelming when sun slowly hides behind the crashing waves.
Amazing beach, perfect in so many ways. Even had dolphins swimming by. It's easy to get to, has State Park parking, so huge you have your choice of spots where you're still not even slightly close or in the way of other people, dog friendly, surfer friendly without being too rough for the rest of us. Perfect place to go.
