Driving the long twisting tree lined road builds up the expectations of arrival. Not to mention the wildflowers. The dunes are a place of beauty and we had the beach all to ourselves that day.

This is one of the best beaches at Pt Reyes for walking. You can walk all the way from the parking lot to the entrance to the estuary. It's quite a walk. The beach is lovely and clean. It's in the bay so the wave...More

It was a fine beach to walk. We also hiked on a parallel trail along the spit. It was a lovely experience. There were shells and a number of interesting birds.

As beaches go, I found Limantour to be fairly boring. Just a long, flat stretch of beach. I prefer rock outcroppings, tall stacks and tidal pools. Just a personal preference.

It was lovely to stroll along the beach. I saw four sea lions in the water quite close to shore. It was peaceful and pretty--but it got even better at sunset. DP saw a green flash, but I was too bust taking photos!

Water much too cold for swimming but enjoyed sitting in sand on a sunny day. Very clean and picturesque. Bathroom facilities at entrance.

Limantour beach is an amazing beach that is total relaxation. The walk from the parking lot is not far, but you are walking through sand so it is a workout. The beach was not crowded. Although it is whale watching season we did not see...More

I can't say for sure, but I don't recall there being an entrance or parking fee.
