We were just passing through so we didn't have time to do in-depth exploring. The drive, however, is magnificent. Beautiful scenery.

Long sandy beaches, seamlessly interconnected, vast beach areas no people, beautiful ocean, flocking seals in the rolling surf.

Great views, nice beaches warm water. Make sure to bring the sunscreen as there's no shade on this beaches and no trees nearby. Could be windy depends on the weather for the same reason.

Finally did the off road to Racepoint, how beautiful plus it’s a great deal at $50 for a 7 day pass. Great drive, unbelievable dunes and miles of fairly uninhabited beach (except SCV area). Yes lots of seals and thankfully no great whites. Can’t wait...More
