I was recommended to visit this beach and it was worth it. It's a beautiful natural beach with tunnels and pretty rock formations.

Nice spot to hike on rocks over looking the ocean. I wasn’t dressed for the climbing on rocks but took my sandals off and was fine. You can go down on the beach and go through tunnels.

We loved this family campground. Most sites are big, flat, and shaded by huge sycamore trees, and all are a quick walk to the beach through a tunnel under PCH. Bathrooms cleaned every morning and showers are hot. Many (but not all) sites have electrical...More

I love beaches that are nestled in a small cove like area. This is one of them. It off the path and usually pretty quiet. I think it's a great place to bring kids. The water isn't usually rough. There are rocks, but generally speaking...More

There is a State run parking lot on the Northbound side of Highway 1. You then walk underneath the highway to reach the caves and the tide pools.
