You have to ask around and find out what is low tide. You access this beach by hiking during low tied from Dos Padres beach. This is not really a swimming beach except in the most ideal conditions. Waves come crashing in and can take away all the tiny sliver of sand beach to enter. But it is a very photographic beach. Crabs scurry across the rocks. Please observe the sign and do not go past the NW edge of the sand sliver to the tide pool that they are trying to protect up on the rock ledge.
