What a great spot to visit and see, my mistake. I thought this was the Pebble Beach in Monterey County where I am living.

One of the most unique beaches in the world. Pebble beach, tide pools and incredible rock formations. Great for photographers and nature enthusiasts. Not the best for simply sunbathing.
Great place to visit. Anazing rock formations. Worth spending time take your kids too. The beach is full of large and small sized pebbles - very colorful. Though you are not supposed to pick them - lot of people collect them and make jewelry out of these. Walking on them is like a foot massage. Feels good. I would love to do it everyday if I get a chance.
