This is a nice beach with easy access. It has a very good sized rock reef line parallel to shore. Sandy beach with occasional rocks. Surf can be up at times but is commonly protected by Point Dume from swells from the north.

What You Can See Here

 This site has a very nice rock reef parallel to shore. Usually a nice kelp bed when temperatures are favorable. This a nice place for lobster, octopus, angel shark, halibut,  junior leopard sharks and a variety of other fish. The inside of the rock reef or kelp beds is probably about 15 to 18 feet depending on the tide. The outside maybe 28 to 30 feet. Doesn't get really deep here but usually nice dive with lots to see.  Great spot for a Night Dive because of parking and things to see. Please be respectful of the people that live in the houses on the beach.
