A really scenic beach with small coves at the base of short cliffs. We climbed all over the cliffs through large sea caves and went out on a large boulder in the water. We had such a good time. We would definitely recommend this beach.

There is a State run parking lot on the Northbound side of Highway 1. You then walk underneath the highway to reach the caves and the tide pools.
