    Single best day hike in the world. Period. Starting at the beach, you trek into a canyon lined with cacti, followed by riparian woodland and then a magnificent coastal redwood forest. From there, you rise sharply into the broad, open Santa Lucia highlands, with views of the Pacific coast like none other. This can be a semi-rigorous venture, but it's ...

    1 review

    This is not a normal beach. This beach is primarily for SCUBA diving. I say this not to imply that the divers are possessive of it, but as a warning that it is a very unsafe beach for casual passersby to stop and try to swim in.
