You have kiwi birds walking around. Otters swimming around. The brach is huge. You can spend hours sitting at the beach enjoying yourself. Close by is a nice fresh fish place if you are hungry.

Such an amazing place to walk around and explore! The beach is beautiful and there’s plenty of outdoor activities to enjoy. I especially loved all the sea otters!

Such a beautiful place to see. Definitely a site to see if you are in the area. There are many otters in the area. And beware of the squirrels! They come up to you needing food!

Located right on the bay and boardwalk,this restaurant couldn't have been better. Service was attentive and warm. View was unsurpassed. We're still talking about the food one week later. Fabulous fish tacos and super clam stew. Best meal we had in a long time.

From Big Sur, it will be before San Luis Obispo. You can't miss it driving down Highway 1.

No climbing is allowed. You can pretty much walk right up to it. You can also enjoy some very nice tide pools at its base.
