Pescadero State Beach

San Francisco, CA

Families come here to picnic on the sand. Kids enjoy climbing up the large sandstone rock formation to enjoy a view of the next cove over. During times of high surf, the waves are impressive, crashing against the rocks below. This beach is pretty nice, but not as great to play at as San Gregorio State Beach. Also, if it's rainy and you want to eat your picnic from your car, try the parking lot south of this one, Pescadero Jetty, for a great view.

The red tab below is exactly where the parking lot is situated for this beach. Turn off Hwy 1 at the sign that says, "Pescadero State Beach." You can't see the water from the parking lot, but you can walk down the small path to the beach. There are restrooms. The beach is self-pay (honor system). $10 covers parking for all state beaches for one day.

Best time of my life was at the UCSC when we drove up here. Someday I will move back. I can't wait. You can't get any better than the ocean. )

The beach I like the best- the water is relatively clear, sand is clean and it is never crowded. The surrounding area has a small town atmosphere and there aren't any houses or hotels built on the beach.)
