First of all, I lived here for many years. Love it still. Even though it has changed over the decades, the natural beauty makes this the perfect spot for a vacation, a weekend or an evening. It should be on your itinerary for every Southern California trip. Any time of the year. Just remember to wear layers, all year round.... More

A truly fabulous beach with tons of restaurants and snack places around. Parking is easy if you park behind the gas station. When the water is calm it is truly spectacular. Be careful when the tide comes in as it can be treacherous. Truly a magical beach and quintessentially Californian

This is a great little town to stay in Southern California! Plenty of Boutique style motels to choose from and great restaurants to choose from! All within walking distance. There is a great park up in the hills overlooking the ocean offering great views.

What a wonderful beach! Pure happiness... palm trees, flowers, very nice sand! I had read several reviews before we went to California, someone said it was the best beach on the Pacific Coast. And I should agree :) Gorgeous, unforgetable sunsets, little local restaurants nearby, the views of the houses built tightly on the hills of the town - all... More

This is my go to beach for lunch and tide pooling. Sea aenomies, crabs, watching birds. Just an all around family and date place to go.
