Harmony Headlands hike starts in the parking area by Hwy 1 and goes all the way to the ocean. Fairly flat all the way, deep grass and brush off the trail but really interesting and great views all... more »
I love the ocean. I love the smell. I love that I feel like each wave comes in and then takes any heaviness I have and soothes it out. I've been to MANY beach areas in my life but this small area is by far my favorite. I'm not a put on a bikini and go lay on a towel kind of person; I love checking tide pools, walking through the waves... This a more secluded and quiet area than say Pismo Beach and is best for the peaceful kind of experience I prefer.
TICKS lots of TICKS WARNING. We came back covered in them. We did not go off trail! they where in our clothes and we had 3 on us at home. Be warned!!! The view of the beach was gorgeous. Just mind the ticks.
