This is a great walking beach and takes you down below the Pebble Beach Golf Links. Even got an errant ball that almost hit me. Very clean beach. Great for people watching but the most fun is watching all the dogs at play. They can run loose and it does seem like a lot of fun for them and their owners. Thankfully, most of the owners clean up after their pets and do seem to get "encouragement" to do so by others close by. Parking can be a bit of a problem at busy times. Sunsets can be spectacular.
