Super white sand beach to walk on for miles. On a hot day, a dip in the very cold ocean is possible. Best to go early because by afternoon the winds usually pick up and blows the fine sand about.

We walked to Limantour Beach. The views were amazing. We went on a weekday so it wasn’t crowded. We missed out on the lighthouse because it is not open on Wednesday’s.

The family decided to hit the beach and chose this one. A good choice. Very clean of trash. One interesting thing is that this beach allows horses. There were at least five at all times. no interference with the beach goers. A nice touch.

Definitely not the best beach in the area. A few minute walk from the parking lot. Nothing special. Much better beaches like North beach or Drakes beach.

Great views of the estuary as well. Bring layers for both wind and fog and a picnic lunch. Not a strenuous walk to get there.

Driving the long twisting tree lined road builds up the expectations of arrival. Not to mention the wildflowers. The dunes are a place of beauty and we had the beach all to ourselves that day.

This is a great beach for kids/families. You can even bring your dog on one long stretch of the beach. There are many trailheads here but my kids just wanted to hang on the beach and play. They played and dug in the sand and...More

I can't say for sure, but I don't recall there being an entrance or parking fee.
