this gorgeous beach which at low tide is like something out of this world. The sea stacks and anemones with starfish were awesome. We wandered the beach through the driftwood and just soaked in all of the beauty around us. We had about 45 minutes...More

Long hike up and down hills, but the beach is absolutely beautiful. It is unlike any east coast beach or any beach that I have ever seen. Several groups camping out on the beach for the night, however, we being in our 40’s where not...More

The beach is about 3/4 mile from the parking lot, but then you need to climb over a whole bunch of tree trunks to get onto the beach itself. It's worth the work, but we didn't know we would need to climb over them.

The two others were rialto and ruby. This one needs a bit of a walk but was perhaps the most beautiful one, and with less people

I strongly recommend Second Beach for its numerous photo opps, especially at sunset. The beach entails a 7/10 mile hike in, which can be exhausting due to the steps when you exit the beach in failing light. The beach is sandy and easy to walk...More

We did the hike to Second Beach and really got a kick out of it. Keep in mind that it does descend down and what goes down must come up. But it is worth it because the hike and beach are amazing and fun.

Getting here was a relatively short hike. Great views. Getting to the shore requires you negotiate over many washed ashore trees. Watch your footing. I didn't notice the sand covering the debris and slipped. Luckily I still bounce :) Very scenic!
