I was expecting something better. The thumbnail photo for the beach on this app features beautiful, multicolored rocks. I didn't see anything that looks like the thumbnail photo. They mostly look like little grey pebbles.

Still, my kids had fun finding cool rocks and little shells. There are some neat large rocks jutting out from the shore.

It is a picturesque place to take photos and watch surfers.

We were here on a foggy, cloudy morning but we still enjoyed the beauty of the beach. Parking was easy and there were many places to access the beach. I'm glad we stopped here, because further up Hwy 1 we couldn't find any place to access the beaches.

Suggest going early before the crowd comes around or after 8:30-9am. Quiet, peaceful, and beautiful.

I was drawn here after seeing some beautiful photos from the beach but there I couldn’t replicate what I saw online.

On a grey foggy morning, this beach wasn't the beauty I was expecting. The colourful stones aren't obvious until you look very closely at patches of small stones on the sandy beach, then you find the beauty. It's great for small children (and in fact adults) to play with the stones admiring the different colours and search through for the odd bit of seaglass. There's a boardwalk along the top of the beach. Great as a stop on a journey, but I wouldn't say it's a must visit.
