This beach is easy to get to and not over crowded. Great place to spend your day! Pack a picnic and spend the day relaxing and taking in the Pacific Ocean. You'll be happy you did.

We visited this spot early. It was so beautiful. The rocks and waves were relaxing. The surfers were starting to gather and it was great to watch. It is worth a stop and some great photos.

I am not sure. I don’t think so. If so, it is for restricted hours only and probably at the end of the day as it is for LJ Shores. You can stop by the beach and check the signage.

It'll be fantastic.We were there over New Year's, & while we didn't have an interest in braving really cold water, there were plenty of surfers and swimmers wearing wetsuits in the surf. June is perfect for most.
