“Per my 5 year old "Better than Sea World"”
Reviewed January 1, 2012

This is a perfectly pristine beach that has been inhabited by sea lions. You can walk on the beach walkway and watch and get an up close view of sea lions in action -- surfing the waves, sunbathing. My kids spent an hour entranced by the sea lions -- and when we went the next day to Sea World, my 5 year old said that he liked the beach with the sea lions better.

“A beautiful view and seals up close!”
Reviewed December 30, 2011

We love to take visitors here to see the seals up close. In the mornings they've been very playful in the water. At low tide, you can walk out on the breakwater which is very nice. You can get pretty close to the seals...just stay behind the rope and don't bother them. There's lots of free street parking but it does fill up on nice days. Mornings are a great time to visit because parking is open, too.

Reviewed December 29, 2011

no swimming here. It is a baby seal sanctuary but very educational and fun for everyone.

“Overrated”
Reviewed December 5, 2011

Well, it is nice to see the seals and the views are pretty. If you have spare time then just go. What I really missed over there is a nice place to have a light lunch and drink some beer.
