It depends on the time of year. During summer (June 28-Sept 1) I might be inclined to park in Downtown and use the free shuttle service.


Other than that it is strictly street parking and you have to read the signs carefully.

That's right but, if you can arrive early (10am or earlier) you should find street parking anywhere along Cliff Drive.

There are no restrooms there but there are just North at Crescent Bay. You can walk around the cliffs at low tide or go back up to Cliff and turn left to the next access point.

If you go around the cliffs, it's a really neat walk/climb and as you get to Crescent Bay, there is a sea cave that the kids can go into at the lowest of low tides. It's about 6 feet deep and there's a little hole at the top that they can reach up and out.

It's pretty cool.

The walk, that way, to the restroom and showers is about 20+ minutes, FYI.
