Beautiful Misty Evening On The Big Sur Beach In California

Beautiful Misty Evening On The Big Sur Beach In California

The Surf Of The Beaches Of Big Sur At Sunset

If you like the more rugged beaches, that are not packed with sun bathers, Big Sur is the place to go. In Big Sur there are beaches for everyone. Some you have to hike a little to get there and others you can drive all the way. Some are wild and rocky, and others are less wild and secluded. Some have restrooms and others do not. The views are all different, it seems like you can see forever, and of course,  the sunsets are amazing.

There are many beaches to choose from, but Garrapata State Park is a favorite of adventure travelers. The beaches are just a short hike, the views are spectacular, and who knows what you might see.  Often you will be able to spot Sea Otters and other marine life sun bathing on the rugged rocks that line the coastline. Have you ever seen a Sea Lion up close? Have you ever watched a Seal at play? Big Sur is home to many different types of marine life, and this beach is a perfect place to see marine life enjoying the day among the rocky coastline.

Pfeiffer Beach is another fun beach in the area. It is another favorite for those locals who enjoy the flatter beaches. It is easy to get to, still has a secluded feel, and the views are amazing. It is a local favorite for watching the sunset, or just walking the beach. It is unique among the beaches!

Another unique and different beach is Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park Beach. If you like to dive, this is the beach for you. It does require a short hike of about 2 miles, but it is well worth the effort. This is a beautiful beach and the diving is good.

Sand Dollar Beach and Jade Cove are popular with those who like to look for unique and interesting rocks. Jade can be spotted at times on both beaches.

Accommodations are excellent in the area with RV Parks, State Camp Grounds, several Bed and Breakfasts, Lodges, hotels, and specialty retreats. There are also many quality restaurants in the area. There is a visitors center in Big Sur that has information on the above beaches, as well as many others. You will also find information on dinning and accommodations.

If you are looking for a California Beach adventure, then Big Sur is the place to be.
