La Selva Beach, California

Not far from majestic redwood forests is the small community of La Selva Beach. North of Watsonville and south of Aptos, the pride of La Selva Beach is its gorgeous coastline. Manresa State Beach is an ideal spot for surfing, coastal camping, and watching the sunset around a fire ring. A haven for marine life and birders, the La Selva Beach area is semi-rural, where coastal farms stretch out to meet ocean bluffs. Nearby restaurants and antique shops round out the La Selva Beach experience.
