Print Leave a comment
One Thousand Steps, in The Mesa neighborhood, is a beach access stairway of about 200 steps which leads to a thin ribbon of beach. It's best to visit at low tide and then you can walk for miles. Beware some people bring their dogs without a leash.
The view from the top, and as you walk down the stairs, is just gorgeous! The water is an amazing blue-green on sunny days. At sunset it's also wonderful.
Note: The last section of stairs is slippery.
Afterward, it's nice to walk around the pretty streets of The Mesa, which have lovely, varied trees, and ocean views. Shoreline Park is a long clifftop park where many people also like to walk.
