I'd been to abalone cove before, and didn't like the hike down, so i tried this place at the recommendation of friends much easier to get to, parking at the bottom makes for an easy walk to the tide pools. Make sure to go at low tide and bring foot protection because the rocks are sharp.

Try to get to the lowest level as the sun goes down and watch the sunset. The wave crashing the rocks makes for some great video. Local police told us be gone by dark as the dealers take over after that.

We very much enjoyed the vista views of the Pacific Ocean at White Point. We also saw dolphins swimming in the water. There is nice desert foliage. On the way out of the park, we saw classic cars arriving. There is a fee for parking. One pays at the parking fee meter.

We climbed among the rocks along the beach and found sea hares, starfish, crabs, sea urchin and, of course, barnacles and mussels. (Our muscles were quite sore the next day.) Watched the birds grab the sea urchins and eat the insides, leaving the purple "skeleton" behind. Bring your hand sanitizer and sturdy shoes that you won't mind getting wet. You... More

White Point is a fairly small state park that extends from the hillside butting up against homes down to the state beach, but it offers incredible views from nearly any point. What amazes me every time I stare out into the Pacific is the proximity of Catalina Island. The park provides easy terrain for hiking with mild elevation. Most of... More
