We were in the area for a week and went birding every day (sometimes more than once) at Huntington Beach State Park.
Nice boardwalks and a variety of habitats makes it a great place to spend a few hours a day.
The beach itself is broad and very clean. And dogs are allowed which makes it a nice place to take a walk.
