“View of the beach from trail”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2014

We had been to the Grove in February and saw butterflies and then walked the trail by the camp ground and through the trees to the beach, absolutely beautiful location and have lots of photos!

“Nice walk and butterflies are everywhere if you visit at the right time!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

We often camp at the State Campground where this is located. They butterflies are pretty, it's sad to see so many dead on the sidewalk though. Definitely a must see if you are in the area at the right time of year.

“Natures Beauty in all it's Glory”

When the butterflies are in Pismo Beach this is an amazing attraction. It only takes a few minutes to stop and view and it's free. Definitely worth the time.
