  • Clean beach, with wonderful views, friendly people....Perfect place to relax and enjoy the unique California's weather.  more »
  • It is a truly beautiful place. The most attractive for my was to see the sea lions at the foot of the beach in its natural habitat and very close to you. You can take their ugly without problem. Small parts of beach water is cold so you can forget about swimming. There are several shops and cafes and restaurants, all very cute but none cheap. It is a very relaxed place although finding parking can be tricky.
