You can ride your bike, walk or drive your car along this beautiful stretch of beach. Tide pools fun to explore, St George beach nice Sandy Beach. Walking the piers also fun the sea lions very plentiful and it was fun watching them ride the waves.

The beach was the best part. The beach was not crowed and was only steps away from the door of the Cresent Beach Motel. I had to walk a few feet to get to it. We walked to beach North and South and it was great.

Beautiful beach along 101 with easy access for most. Great place to let your dog run wild along the beach. And for people with difficulty walking it is easier to get the beach than most spots along 1 and 101.

You can walk a little on this rocky beach. There is a lighthouse that can be visited at low tide only but we did not get there. On the city pier there are two restaurants. The Chart House is excellent and you can see the harbor seals and sea otters sitting along the pier outside your window while you dine... More

This was our favorite beach of Northern Ca. We were able to play and swim in the water! We found a lot of sand dollars along the beach. We will visit again

Nice place to watch waves crash and seals swim. Even got to see some whales well off the coast. Wish we had brought binoculars. I you don't find any seals on the beach... walk over to the harbor and pier area. If you don't find them here, head all the way around to the marina area. We found tons in... More

I was very pleased with my recent visit. The beach wasn't crowded and it was perfect for taking a walk. It's also the perfect beach to take your family to and stay for the day. I enjoyed watching the surfers and others who dared go into the water (it was chilly).
