Loved this beach park - on the winter day we visited, it was cool but sunny and not crowded at all. Just a wonderful walk along the beach - we must have gone 3 miles or so. So peaceful and quiet with great views. The occasional dogs enjoyed their outing as well. We had the State Park's pass which helps. To me, this is a true gem of a place. Nice to spend time in a peaceful setting amidst the hustle bustle of the I-5 corridor in SoCal.

It is worth paying to park here, or maybe you have a state parks pass, and so can park for free? It is so great to walk along the beach here for a mile or two or three or four, see the sea birds, and enjoy the sensation of the sand under your feet, and the song of the Pacific Ocean as it stretches out for thousands of miles to the west of you and the waves come rolling in to greet you.

Cardiff is such a cute lil sea side town. The beach is clean, with a small little tide pool to explore. Be sure to watch out for lifeguards' warnings, signs, flags, etc.

Beach has decent parking lot where you can buy an all day pass or pay by the hour. Good for surfing and for walking your dogs. Great Sunsets all down this coast. Take what you need with you for the day as it's a mile or two from restaurants etc..
