There is beauty all around...

I enjoy sitting by the shore...looking for shells, watching the tourists, and listening to the crashing waves. The world is beautiful!

We always walk to Leffingwell Landing along the boardwalk from our hotel. It has a large grassy area with picnic tables right along the ocean. Nice sunset views

Nice well maintained park with grassy area, bathrooms and lots of parking. Nice walking trails. Great views. At low tide beach is accessible with a bit of a scramble down and back up.

When we were visiting during Thanksgiving week, there weren't many visitors, and the vistas were outstanding. Lovely place to visit, with easy access and a short trail.

I go to a lot of parks. Especially the ones within 30 miles of my house. this park and Cambria is so wonderful. During the week I often have it to myself. It has a place you can sit facing south and watch the waves crash in. Wow when there's a storm it is dynamic. there are picnic tables, restrooms,... More

I was in Cambria on a spectacular sunny and warm day. The views of the Pacific Ocean from this delightful park area were amazing.

My wife and I were married there 20 years ago. A great place to picnic, relax, and enjoy the scenery.

Quiet and nice protected beach. Has a launch ramp for kayaks and small craft. Be careful of submerged rocks all around cove. Easy access to Piedras Blancas for diving (be careful of fog as it comes in quickly at different times of the year).
