“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.

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!
