“Absolutely One of the Best Beaches In Santa Cruz”
Reviewed August 31, 2012

I LOVE this beach! It's bar-none, the best beach in Santa Cruz County. Skip The Boardwalk and choose beautiful nature instead!

“Just a beach”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

This beach is no different from other state beaches in California. So it is hard to rate it against other qualified places. You can walk for very long time and won't see the end of it. Always be careful with the waves.

We enjoyed watching all the surfers. You can bring your dog if it's on a leash.
