The drive through Jalama beach road itself is a fascinating experience. Wonderful views along the road. By the time we approached the Jalama beach, we were driving atop a nearby hill and the view of beach from there is literally jaw-dropping. One of the best beaches I have seen in the world. There are very little words to explain the... More

We read a review that the county park beach store had the best burger in the area; therefore, we drove the 14 winding miles to see if this park really had the best burger. Guess what, it does and the hot dog is just as good. The park is on the beach and has a $10 daily fee. That said,... More

Wow, imagine our surprise after a long fwy drive and then a 14 mi. winding, rural road to make the last turn and spy this incredible secluded place with outstanding views, miles of beach and shale/ sandstone ancient bluffs to enjoy! Very windy so dress warm and bring tent stakes. Important to note that there is a great store but... More

You really have to want to get to this place...it's 30 miles off the beaten track, reachable by only a narrow, winding road, but it is WORTH IT!!!! Great surfing and the famous Jalama Burgers at the Beach Store. This is where many surfing scenes from the film "Big Wednesday" were filmed. It is totally isolated, even miles from the... More

Loved Jalama Beach County Park!!! Stayed in two campsites. One on the beach and one above the beach. Loved both. However, the above the beach facility had electricity and that was very convenient. They were also testing wifi. Worked great even though we didn't use for any web surfing. The weather was incredible, just light sweaters during the day. The... More

When it foggy other places this place is clear. It is quiet but sometimes with a high surf. The really bad part is the long curvy road getting there. You need good brakes good eyes, good steering car. Watch out for bicycles.

Jalama is a great beach for surfing, walking or having a delicious burger. A great beach for camping as well. Can be windy .

Jalama Beach County Park requires an effort to get to. It's a 14 mile trip, one way, off Hwy 101. We went there for the first time in 30 years and had an enjoyable day. It's $10 per car for day-use. Camping spots are available and there are cool cabins there for rent. Flush toilets and showers are available. A... More

My family and I have been going to jalama beach for the past 23 years. We do not typically go to the same places but Jalama's beaches draw us back every year. It is definitely an escape from the fast paced city life with cool breezes and relaxing atmosphere. I would recommend this place to everyone.
