Love the harbor! Parking has always been fairly easy for us. I love all the shops and restaurants there too. Especially the White Pelican for gifts. Baby Beach is right there for the toddlers and paddle boarding, not to mention sailing lessons/kids camp for the kids at WestWind Sailing.

Enjoyed every bit of this lovely place. Beach access near the jetty just to watch the waves as I went at high (and rough) tide. Peaceful harbor good for boat watching, people watching and photography. Up above the harbor are two nature trails with spectacular views and perfect for some great photography. Watched a sunset on the western side trail and was able to see further north along the coastline. A beautiful finish to a very nice day. Pack a picnic, head out on the trail and enjoy the views!

Our family enjoyed several of the restaurants (Harpoon Harvey was our favorite) and we had a blast checking out the daily catches of the many fishing boats as they arrived back in the harbor.

My wife and I were able to ride bicycles all through this scenic area, which features numerous parks, quality restaurants, and many areas for short strolls by the harbor and beach. Unlike many other locations for day trips at the coast in Southern California, there is abundant off street parking. Use your navigation device to find a viewpoint offering expansive views of the entire harbor area adjacent to the Blue Lantern Inn (but be sure to park on the street).
