An incredible view, we were able to see whales off of the point. It was fun to watch the surfers, otters, and seals.

There is a nice walkway that goes along the beach side which is great for walking. Also there is a nice park at one end. A very nice place to have a picnic

Take a few days and really get to know this area. It's so different from Carmel. Peaceful, uncrowded, authentic, not glitzy. A real beach for walkers, families, dog-lovers. Too cold to swim, but amazing with a coat, hot chocolate, a book and a dream.

Loved it here! The view out into the ocean was beautiful! There is a mountain of boulders to climb and sit there and watch the ocean, some surfers and beautiful views. I could sit there all day watching the ocean. Lots of sea gulls to entertain you.

We stayed across the street at a great B&B. Each morning we would grab a cup of coffee and walk over to see the sunrise. It was a wonderful way to begin the day.

The truth of the matter is: bus loads of tourists are dropped off several times per day at this point, and that is not real appealing to Lovers looking for that romantic site to pitch n woo. However... Sunset brings a whole new vibe to this breathtakingly beautiful harbor point! Bring your bikes for a great ride along the Pacific.

Free to the public, great (free) parking on the street and plenty of room to walk, make cairns, pull out your easel and paint or just plain people-watch. Bring a picnic lunch and make a day of it. It's easy to kick your shoes off and get the sand between your toes for a day!
