Nice spot to enjoy a breeze, the sun glistening off of the ocean, and the sound of waves. We coffee and strolled around nibbling on our pastries from Pavel's Backerei. The gulls are quite funny in how gangs will follow you, but it's a relaxing stroll or stop. Ten minutes will rejuvenate you.

This is a really nice little beach, small grassy park, or place to view the sea lions. This is a good spot to start your walk on the great bike/pedestrian path into Monterey. There is even a parking lot, yeah!

Visiting during the recent storms California experienced in December we walked in misty rain, hand-in-hand, experiencing the joy and presence of God and in our lives. We marveled at the raging waves hitting the rocks and the bravery of the surfers challenging that might. Flowers in bloom thriving now from the welcome moisture needed to survive and show their beauty.... More

This beach was one of our kids' (3 & 6 years) favorite part of or trip down the west coast. It was a nice small little beach. Barely any waves, pretty warm water...a food stand to get hot dogs, snacks, ice cream right there...bathrooms. We rented kayaks on the beach..and the kids got to see seals, etc... out in the...

We took family pictures here and climbed the rocks. High tide can get exciting with the waves crashing on the rocks. Very nice lawn for Frisbee or picnics. Very nice stop.

its small, alittle unkept, but it is very nice and peaceful both times we as a family have gone. It's a great little stop for those with little ones, or anyone that don't wish to fight rocks, or huge waves.

A beautiful park with a beautiful view. We were fortunate to walk by when a lovely outdoor wedding was taking place, complete with a flower arch and marachi band on a lovely, sunny day! Truly a place for all who love...young and old alike, Great little beach accessible on the northside with a good little place for burgers and soda.

Although it is not that big, it has a pretty beautiful view. You will see a better view if you climb up the point.
