“Nice stop”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2012

Right off Highway 1. Don't blink or you'll miss it. Nice place to stop and view the ocean. Stop in Pescadero for some Mexican food or seafood.

“Great Tide-Pooling”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2012

Love going tide pooling at pescadero beach. Then head inland for a mile or so and reach the town of Pescadero. Visit the tacqueria in the gas station or duarte's tavern. Pick some berries at Phipps Farm and finally go to Harley Goat farm for some delicious goat cheese

“Beautiful!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2012

Not to mention that my husband proposed to me at this beautiful spot, but we loved going there even before that made it special. The rocks are a bit of a hike down if you don't have good shoes, but still easy enough for young children to adventure out under supervision. Starfish often litter the shoreline in the late summer and harbor seals lay within a few yards offshore (and are very curious, they will watch you as much as you watch them!) Not a lot of room to lay out a beach blanket, as the tide rolls in quick, but its nice for an outing and some beach-combing with amazing scenery around you.
