I would make day trips just to come out here. Beautiful virtually all year round, this place is serene and hidden. Not a touristy trap. You can spend hours out here, and I haven't even completed the trails. You just have to see it for yourself and experience the nature.

You can not have a bad day once you arrive here. The peace and the sounds of nature. Sat had our lunch, hiked along the bluff, walked the pier and by then all bad thoughts had disappeared.

We were delighted to find a hike on the bluff through trees and various micro climates. Lovely ocean views and wildlife viewing.
The walk down the beach at low tide was not crowded but we encountered several off leash dogs. Not all of them were under control. That is our only negative experience of the location - otherwise it was marvelous!

Great place to stop after a long drive from Los Angeles. Large parking lot with restroom facilities. Steps leading down to the beach. The beach itself is great flat. Great place to view sunsets and sunrises. I've seen a lot of kayakers in the areas well.
