“Tricky to get there but worth it”
Reviewed 25 April 2014

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.

This beach is a really paradise. To get there you will need to pass through a trail of stones. Amazing!

“Watch out for the tidetable!”
Reviewed 24 October 2013

Search for the low tide hours, and be carefull when walking over the rocks, that can be slippery when wet. It will be a lot more confortable and safe if you use some kind of sporting shoe. Other than that, you will have an incredible experience, snorkling in pristine, safe waters.
