Ahhhh by the sea

Wonderful walks above the shoreline with beautiful wildflowers galore. Sun above, seals below -- a great California experience.

Salt Point is one of the most under-rated parks in California. Of course the beaches are beautiful - it's the ocean, it's hard to go wrong. It has great tide pools to visit, and hiking trails to explore. The best part are the hike-in campsites. They are just a short walk but the privacy is unmatched. A couple trying to... More

Just off Hwy 1, a beautiful place to stop and see some awesome beach and rock formations. Great for a picnic, or just to stretch your legs. Easy to get to, and worth the stop.

spent 3 nights there in early April. Had a nice campground with a self contained trailer. No water or electric hookups, but fire pit, picnic table and relatively flat parking area. There are flush toilets and a cold water outlet scattered around the campground. It was windy, as is often the case on the northern California coast. There is a... More

We couldn't find the waterfall on the beach or the rock arch that are on the website. There is plenty of poison oak along the trails, but the paths are decent. The beaches are really awesome and there are some really cool abalone shells and incredible carved out rocks.

My boyfriend and I stayed at Salt Point State Park on a weekday, so when we arrived, it was practically empty and we had our pick of the lot! At the check in booth there was a Park Ranger, the kindest woman you will ever meet. Our trip was missing a night of reservations and she went out of her... More

We went on President's Day. Amazingly, the park and beaches at Gerstle Cove, Stump a Beach, and Fisk Mill Cove were free of crowds and felt so secluded. So much beauty to behold! Just the way we liked it.
