we stopped here on a whim and it was definitely worth it - the views are amazing and just a short walk up the hill path leads you to a great spot for pictures. we didn't swim but i would definitely love to spend an afternoon on this beach.
We stopped here during our drive down the Pacific Coast Highway. It's a lovely little beach with easy parking and restrooms. It's not a huge beach and not great for laying out but nice to stretch your legs and walk around for different views.
You do have to pay to park here, but it's worth it. There is tons of driftwood on the beach and it's fun to create driftwood art. It's a bit difficult to get down to and the day we were there we couldn't access the main Beach due to a lagoon, but the little beach was still fun.
The view is great. It is a good place to start a walk along the shore. There is a view from both the beach and the parking lot. There are a few tables by the parking lot for grilling. There is parking fee.
