“with two miles of beach front to explore”

The park has two miles of beach front, with coastal hiking and a 50-foot climb to a beautiful view of the Pacific. The park offers diverse coastal vegetation with trails running from ocean beaches into dense redwood groves. The park also features outstanding coastal headlands at Soberanes Point. Sea lions, harbor seals and sea otters frequent the coastal waters and California gray whales pass close by during their yearly migration.

Check out semi-secluded beach at Turnout 19. It was a beautiful 80 degree day out and there weren't more than 25-30 out. One of my new favorite beaches.
