“Breathe Taking!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

There are no words to describe the beauty of the magnificent Pacific Ocean. The birds and seals along the shore and the marine life is beautiful.

“Dirty”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

Beyond the beautiful water views, the beach itself is disappointing. The atmosphere is young and hip with surfers everywhere. However, the bathrooms were dirty and uncomfortable. The one stop that can be skipped.

“Love it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

We went over there to see the seals n sea lions. There is a part where you can scuba dive or snorkel to see the sea life. Plus you are not far from the seals. On the other side there was a beach called kids beach because the water was easier over there but the sea Los took it over. Had a great time. Some really interesting shape trees too
