Garrapata State Park has 2 miles (3.2 km) of beachfront, with coastal hiking and a 50-foot (15 m) climb to a view of the Pacific. The park offers diverse coastal vegetation with trails running from ocean beaches into dense coast redwood groves. The park also features coastal headlands at Soberanes Point. California sea lions, harbor seals and sea otters frequent the coastal waters while gray whales pass close by during their yearly migration. Please visit to get some breath taking views & aqua blue water colour. I love ❤️ it .
Breath-taking, beautiful, majestic, serene, colorful, opulent in natural wonder. This entire strip off the HWY 1 is worth visiting and spending a few days in to absorb & enjoy. I would recommend that anyone considering visiting stop thinking about it & just visit- you won’t regret it. Just a few tips: give yourself plenty of time, be patient with parking, forget your phone exists; enjoy.
