“Nice Beach”

Did not spend very much time at the beach, but from what I saw, I will definitely be back. The water was clean and the beach was clean. Had a nice grassy area to have a picnic or just to relax without having to hang out in the sand.

Went there during the 4th of July holiday to watch the firework show. We arrived at 1pm and the parking was already full/closed and ended up parking at the neighborhood some 30 minutes later. A family member arrived at 3:30 and took them over 1hr to find a parking spot!

But once there we settled near the water (less people as) as most are in the grass area with their tents and bbq's set up already.

The firework show will be from a barge towed by a tug boat, so the closer you are in the water the better (imo).

Also parking outside is a plus, you don't have to wait in line to get out of the park after.
Parking (inside): $9 flat.
Park hours (4th of July): 5am-10pm

Will definitely go back next year, but much earlier this time =)

I've been to Cabrillo beach many times and the kids always enjoy walking along the rocks to the right side of the beach. Here you'll find tide pools galore especially at low tide. About a mile out there are a few sandy parts to the beach and small pieces of sea glass can be found all around. My kids and I love looking for the small rounded pieces of glass and we have found a few rare colors here. I'd definitely recommend water shoes or sneakers for this beach to make walking over the rocks comfortable.

Parking is $9 but plentyfull, nice place to bring some wood & starr a bonfire on the pits available on the beach. But of course there may be a fire going on already there so come early.
