This is a really different place to visit. The walk down to the beach is a little treacherous, but just around the next cove is a small waterfall right at the beach! When the tide is out you won't get wet going there.

We went to Hug Point while vacationing in the area. It is a beautiful spacious beach. There is a fair amount of parking but sometimes it is not sufficient. A short walk of around a hundred yards (give or take 30 yards depending on where you get to park) is required to get to the beach. There are also some... More

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

This was a great spot that we wouldn't have found on our own. Friends dragged us down to this spot... and even then I wasn't too impressed... then they walked us a short distance down the beach to ... 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.
