  • One of the most chill beaches I’ve been to. Everyone is respectful and the beach is extremely clean. Great place to watch skilled surfing.
  • I almost died here but other than that 10/10 great beach. Most undeveloped nature youll ever find in this polluted nightmare metropolis of a state. Lots and LOTS of walking. Wear proper shoes to get over the rocky shore and down the cliffs. The cliffs alone are good for sunset pics and photo ops. Barely any people further down past the power plant and hope it stays that way.
