In addition to a great oceanfront beach and facilities, Atalaya is historically interesting, so it was nice to attend their fundraising event. Excellent artists, artisans and craftspersons selling their wares! Beautiful, interesting, provocative!

We had an awesome time at the Huntington Beach State Park! It was so open, and not crowded. It was nice to hang out on the beach and not have the hotels to look at!! Can't wait to go back!

Beautiful beach! Great access! Was very busy on Labor Day but plenty of room for everyone ! Plenty of parking, gift shop, restrooms, picnic areas. Nice wide beach and dogs are allowed on certain parts of the beaches. Great family beach.

The beach was clean and expansive. We went and visited the Atalaya castle, also, which was interesting and well worth the small admission price. Nice grounds and plenty of parking.

According to the park rangers they are separate from the guests in the marshland. We were worried about that too but never seen one on the beach. The beach is like a mile from the marshland separated by a strip of land. I... More

The alligators can be seen anytime, they particularly like to 'sun' themselves out on the tiny island. A good location for viewing is on the overlook.
