  • one of the best tourist spots in Santa Cruz, even if you're not a fan of surfing. if you fear dogs you may want to avoid this spot, as many locals and tourists bring their pets nearby to a dog friendly beach. but if cool grass, amazing views, historical lighthouses, and cute puppers are your thing stop by. parking is free but closes at dusk, so don't park and walk away too long at the end of the day, less you get locked inside.
  • Awesome depiction of surfing history of US. I loved the display of shark bitten surfboard. Nice place to visit for non surfers as well
