What a nice place. All kinds of nature and beautiful views. Volunteers to steer you in the right direction. We didn’t stay long but the tide pools and nature was amazing.

Anemones, mussels, starfish, seals, baby seagulls. So pretty. Windy! Easy to park, restrooms available.

Awesome beach. uS fish and wildlife volunteers were there too helping us find the lounging seals and teaching about the birds. Great stop as you drive along the coast.
