Spectacular views, cliffs, water, breeze. Google California hang gliding and give that a try. Gorgeous spot.

We LOVE this place. Great for kids to run around all over (as long as they're not by the cliffs), and paved so it's good for strollers. The beach is cool, but it's quite a trek back up the sandy hill. GORGEOUS views of the...More

If you are in the Bay Area and have dogs, this is an incredible area to bring your dogs. You can let your dogs off-leash, and this place is huge. If you go, I suggest you park in the parking lot to the right. The...More

Nice place to relax and observe the ocean. Birds are in the area and watching them soaring is amazing. If your lucky the hang glider guys will be flying and that is magical. Great way to spend s few relaxing hours.

This beach is great to enjoy a beautiful Californian sunset. It is very windy and a jacket is definitely required for a longer stay!
