“Great views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

My wife and I had a great time getting up close to the sea lions. This is a great place to get wonderful pictures. Watch your step when you climb on the rocks to get a closer view of the sea lions. Some of them were very slippery.

“Better snorkling than Hawaii!”

The water was clear, calm and cozy. Lots of coves and seals everywhere. Loved it! Beach is awesome spot for photo shoots. Caves, breaking water, rock/water shots...nice!

“Cold But Lovely”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

It was very cold when we went so didn't get to enjoy it as we should have and it was very choppy. Kids loved it, especially the seals and the caves!
