Fantastic secluded beach. Great for windy days – it is ‘hugged’ by cliffs on both sides. Busy on weekends for surfers – easier surf beach, many women and teens prefer this to ‘large open sea’ beaches with rough seas. Easy walk, about 100 yards from parking lot to sand in beautiful rain forest (far if you have to carry children... More

Lovely, glad we stopped, we got a parking spot but at certain times it might be difficult. Worth the climb down and back up. It really isn't a hike but to me it was.

My family and I rented a house in Seaside and visited a different beach each day. After reading reviews, we decided to come here and we were so happy we did! The reviews we read lead us to believe it would be hard to find but that was not the case; the park is clearly marked with signs off 101,... More

Wow.. .caves and waterfall... short hike up stream was pretty cool... You have to go when the tide is low... and... More

Hug Point was a definite winner for our family! My wife and I took it two year old to see the sea caves and he was not disappointed and neither were we. There is a cool little waterfall and caves that you can walk in. Tons of cool rock cliffs take pictures of and tide pools to check out. There... More

It's off the side of the road with parking just short of the beach. A wonderful beach to stroll and look for shells. At low tide you can go around the corner of the rock outcropping to a secluded area. Just keep an eye on the incoming tide as you can become trapped from the main beach.

Lovely beach, with plenty of room for everyone at low tide. Everyone seemed to know when to visit as the small car park was nearly full when we arrived. As others have noted, at low tide you can explore little caves and tide pools and marvel at all the mussels, limpets, barnacles etc. At high tide, there would be a... More

Don't skip this park when you're in the area, its beautiful. Head left/north when you hit the beach, the views around the corner are great.

We stopped by, and there was no place to park. We came back later, and there were a few parking spots. I would suggest getting there early morning or late afternoon so you can get a parking spot. We ate lunch on one of the logs. Nice and relaxing. It is a cute little beach.

Great spot for everyone. Lovely beach flanked by huge rocky cliffs. It was a fun and easy walk around the rocks to hidden caves, a waterfall, another sandy beach, and awesome views. Great place to take a picnic and hangout. Something different than the other beaches in the area and less crowded than haystack rock.
