  • Beautiful beach. Good for surfers, about 3 kns from Point Reyes National Seashore. The beach has restaurant but closes too early and restrooms with Public Parking.
  • I come here to this beach every year. I always stay for the sunset. Every time I go the sunset are beautiful. The water is nice and cold the sand is not to grainy. The air is cool and is usually always open. They only close for wildlife reasons or to keep people safe. They one had to close because baby turtles were hatching. This was a beautiful and clean beach. The parking lot is huge for the amount of people I see. The images were not photoshoped and were taken by my own camera. I hope this beach stays clean forever. I LOVED this beach for years.
