Create an itinerary including Limantour Beach
A sand spit dividing a bay from an estuary, Limantour Beach offers opportunities for hiking, beachcombing, and bird and wildlife watching. Many hiking trails will take you through the wetlands and around the estuary--dress warmly for cool and damp weather. Though this is a swimming beach, think twice before putting on your bathing suit and jumping into the cold water. If you'd rather stay warm and dry, walk to the tip of the spit, where you'll find a scenic spot where the river meets the bay.

  • A little out of the way, but what's wrong with that. Nice beach, could use some more adult toilet facilties. A short hike from the parking lot to the beach.

  • Had the beach entirely to ourselves. Great place to get in the fresh air and disconnect. Saw elk and foxes on our way out!

  • Beautiful beach
  • Beautiful views. Very large beach where you can walk for long distances. Will be very crowded on weekends. Very large parking lot that accomodates many vehicles.
