Great views, nice beaches warm water. Make sure to bring the sunscreen as there's no shade on this beaches and no trees nearby. Could be windy depends on the weather for the same reason.

Finally did the off road to Racepoint, how beautiful plus it’s a great deal at $50 for a 7 day pass. Great drive, unbelievable dunes and miles of fairly uninhabited beach (except SCV area). Yes lots of seals and thankfully no great whites. Can’t wait...More

Yes and No! Allowed only in limited areas, with variety of rules. Avoid areas with seals to prevent pet from catching the distemper virus.
