We stopped and went for a walk along the path at the park. Lots of families, kids etc. You can venture down some stairs to a rocky beach. Very pretty views all around. Would be beautiful to go running on in the mornings.

This is a wonderful walk down Cabrillo. Each Sunday local artists have a showing of art, jewelry, crafts, pottery, etc. for sale. It is popular with locals and crowded. I recommend, if there, go!

We had a great barbeque with friends at the shoreline. Seems to be a popular place for locals as well.

This trip was the second time we made a stop at Shoreline Park. My wife loves to walk up and down the sidewalks above the cliffs overlooking the ocean. There is also a public rest room and play ground for kids.

Hello, Yes, there are a many places for just such an activity. Shoreline is a little louder and more of a picnic feel than other beach spots. So Shoreline is good if you want a place to BBQ and have a "party" kind of... More

I wish I knew the answer to that question. I have been there a few times and will go again as my family lives in that area I have always felt that it was just plain luck to see them but if I find out I will post it.
