“Sea lion watching.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2014

This was an especially fine beach for walking or just sitting. Interesting rock formations just off the shore, one of which had a herd of seals resting and sunning themselves. Very close in and easy to take photos. Beach access is easy too.

“Beautiful Beach Area, Tidal Pools, and Marsch Natural Preserves”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2014

Pescadero State Beach is a beautiful one mile beach aera with rocky cliffs and tide pools. There is also a Marsch Natural Preserve, which is a great place to see birds. They periodically schedule a ranger led walk through the marsch lands (when we were there we noted this week they were holding this on a Sunday).

This is a nice place to take a beach walk as well. Its also a nice place for a picnic.

“Beautiful beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2014

Great place to take a stroll. Parking is free, follow the trail down to the beach. Saw a lot of seals sunning themselves on the rocks.

“Amazing view and you can climb down to beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 February 2014

Amazing does not quite describe the view. Parking is free and you can climb down to the beach, if you can handle moderate hiking.
