We had a short vacation in Santa Cruz and checked Natural Bridges State Park as our first stop. Just a tip to visitors, it is free to park on Delaware Ave which has a direct entrance to the parking lot of the State Park. It only takes you 5 mins from the street to the beach. Parking on the park is $10 per vehicle. The beach is great: long stretch of white sand with the "Natural Bridges". We were surprised by its tide pools: they had sea anemones, sea urchins, fishes, starfish...clams and mussels. You can spend the whole day checking out these little creatures inside these natural aquarium! The park also has restrooms, shaded picnic and BBQ areas with tables and benches. It is a nice place for the whole family.
