The road to get to this beach is a BEAST. My breaks were so heated they smelled bad. Though the distance on the road is under 20 miles, it takes easily 45 minutes each way. Then, once you get down on the beach, the "sand" is varying sizes of rocks that function like quicksand - very challenging to get to the beach. Additionally you cannot get into the water, even to wade, as the currents and breaking waves are too dangerous. The view is beautiful, just be sure you know what you are getting into first.

This is not in the San Fran area. It's a crazy, winding mountain road that takes an hour each way with this amazing beach at the end. You have to see it if you're passing through. When's the next time you'll get a chance?

Absolutely gorgeous! A little bit of a hike to get to and a little off the beaten path, but definitely worth the walk! Very quiet and serene. By far my favorite spot in the San Fran area
