lots of beach to enjoy. Not as crowded as many of the others along the coast. Also visited in the evening as the fog rolled in. Lovely walking area.
Great sandstone cliffs surround the two ends of the beach. Nice curving beach with average waves. Easy to get to and usually parking is available.

what a relaxing way to spend the afternoon, away from the hustle and bustle of the usual tourist attractions. we took a tour of the goat farm, bought fresh cheese from their gift shop, walked downtown Pescadero then at the beach checking out the huge rocks. what a great day!
