San Gregorio Beach

San Gregorio Beach is a wonderful place for kids and grown-ups to frolic and let off some steam! Kids can climb on the huge driftwood logs and splash in the lagoon (which I assume is clean, in this unpopulated area). The sand is golden and pristine, and great for building sandcastles. To the right, there is a large perfect dome of a cave! During high tide, if you're adventurous, you can run around to it while the waves pull back, and then run back out before they come in again (at your own risk!) On the weekends, this beach is lively with families from nearby San Francisco. During high surf, it's glorious to watch and listen to the waves here.
Check out Pomponio Beach, just south of here, with its sandstone ledges where you can stand and listen to the waves crash around you!

Pull off from Hwy 1 at the large sign for San Gregorio State Beach. There is a large parking lot and the beach is right there! The pay booth was self-pay (honor system) both times I've been there. There are restrooms.
