  • Parking isn’t too bad as the neighborhood is large so you don’t have to resort to pch spots. Absolute best place to get sunset pics on the cliff above the beach
  • Ever see the movie From Here to Eternity..? There are no words this is a secluded, romantic, friendly little part of ocean surrounded by rocks, cliffs, and the occasional crab and sea life. Don't bother with santa monica... it's not even a remote comparison. During the summer it gets busy, but if you're smart park at the top of the hill near the circle K I believe and walk all the way down the hill and voila... paradise. Bring your camera, your friend from out of town, your fiance, your family or just you.
