About this spot
This beach on the central California coast offers some great photographic potential. If you are driving up or down the central coast or visiting Hearst Castle, be sure to plan time at sunset for a photo safari along this beach and out to the Estero Bluffs to the north. The walk will take at least an hour round trip from the parking lot.
The pier is easily handicapped accessible, however the beach and and the bluffs are not.
