  • One of the best beaches in all of California. It is easy to get to, located just south of Davenport. When you see the fin coming out of the water, then you will quickly realize where it got its name.  more »
  • Worth the stop - we parked at the Bonny Doon parking lot. No parking fees. There’s a hike down to the cove for a walk through it and a close up view of the fin. The whole area is beautiful and there.....  more »
  • Amazing hidden gem. A short steep hike down, sometimes slippery. Usually not super crowded but an get crowded on nice weekends. Parking is sparse, but side of the road has space. Cool little cave on the right side, but super dark and ends after 100ft.
  • Wow, gorgeous beach. In order to access the beach, you need to do a quick climb down a cliff, but it's not terribly difficult. The cove is just beautiful. The view of the shark fin on the middle surrounded by beautiful water is breath taking. Even if you are unable to climb down to the beach, it's worth pulling over to view this site from the road.
