A crescent cove of sand & cliffs offers lots of privacy, but not for the few who live here. The beautiful creek along with a redwood forests woods, plus abundant wildlife make this tourist destination a scenic splendor. Very busy most days, so be warned. Sunrise to sunset. Horses and dogs are allowed on the beach and some trails. Mellow ocean waves are great for boogie boarders & swimming.
