Waddell Beach reviews
We did a return visit to Waddell State Beach. This is an awesome beach to watch the wind surfers. Part of Big Basin Redwood State Park is across the way. more »
This is one of my favorite beaches in the Santa Cruz area. Its always fun to watch the kite surfers. Its also nice to walk along the ocean. Across the road is a portion of Big Basin State Park. more »
This is the beach for kite surfing. Beginners to experts doing flips in the air the sky is full of colorful kites and occasionally windsurfers. The beach is wide and Wadell Creek cuts through and empties into the ocean. It's located across from the coastal access to Big Basin State Park if the beach is too cool or you want a walk in the woods.
Its a secret
