Hi, Wouldn't recommend this beach at all for sunbathing or swimming as both the sand and water are not clean. Additionally as a warning to people with little kids who might play in the shallow water, I was there a few weeks ago and was bitten numerous times on my legs by something tiny (fish?) in the water, that actually... 更多
As a first time visitor of Cali, I had high expectations for the beaches and Cabrillo exceeded them! I was there at night, and even then, it was pretty serene and beautiful. The water was glistening and the sand was cool. All you needed was a light hoodie and maybe a fire. I'd love to go during the day.
Not exactly what I'd call a swimmer beach, or a shell collector, or a sun bathing...but it is less crowded than most and it's convenient if you dont want to travel far. Nice place to watch the shipping and enjoy a picnic. Pack it with you, not much nearby.
I went with a few friends had no idea there was a parking meter, a little hidden. Beach is a little dirty not many people kind of quiet. Would recommend on taking food as there aren't many options or places to get something! Kind of cold, not many sea shells!

First visit to this beach! It's small but there enough room between parking and the water to set up shop. I would recommend it to any families with young children only because the waves are minimal and won't slam your young ones down and beat them. Very CLEAN! On set restrooms and parking is literally feet away.
Just below the post this is a great stop if you don't want to fight the traffic to get to the more popular areas. Plenty of room to swim and the sea walls are awesome.
If you know about the limitations beforehand you can have a good time at Cabrillo beach. For me, it's not a beach for swimming since the harbor is next door and ships ply the waters there. Rather it's a beach for seeing ships, sea life, the harbor activity across on Terminal Island and picnicking. Do it right & you'll have... 更多
