They have really put a lot of money into the walkway up to the park overlooking the pacific. This was the best part. The beach is beautiful, but very busy. If you are looking for the loud beach seen this is the place for you, otherwise, try off peak times to enjoy the seen a bit more.

Beautiful beach! It can be a great place for a family vacation; particularly, if you can get a hotel room right on the beach.

My wife and I make it a point to come here every weekend. We park close to Las Brisas and work our way down and up PCH and all the side streets.........The only downside is where the 133 and PCH meet......It is a cluster with so many people in one small area trying to navigate.............The biggest upside is the numerous...
