Once of the nicest beaches in the area and that's saying something. This is an easy hike of about 20 minutes. The dense forest and small nooks do look like Hobbit homes. The final "tunnel" to the beach is a nice finish. Beach is a nice place to chill after a hike to the lighthouse.
Gorgeous trail down to the beach! Our group was 2 30-somethings and 2 toddlers and we did just fine there and back. Bit of a steep incline going back up, but not too bad.
Wonderful place to explore and take in views for the day ! The hike from the road to the beach is maybe a 10-20 minute walk, depending on you. It goes downhill pretty fast but nothing too crazy at all. Once you get to the beach, it is such an amazing view! I played on the rocks near the mountain the Lighthouse is on the other side of and almost got swept out to ocean. I was standing on a huge rock, then all of a sudden the tide got super high and got me all wet. It just kept getting higher , so I decided to jump and go towards shore before it gets any higher. My waist and down was drenched in seawater, but it was a good experience overall. 10/10 would recommend this beach . ⛱️
Very beautiful beach. Easy to get to and it's very pretty
Stunning beach and there were almost no people (we visited in mid August). It is a part of Hobbit Trail and, when combined with China Creek trail, it creates a loop (6.4 km). The hike is pretty easy, but it crosses highway 101. It would be a good idea to check/download this trail on something like All Trails as it wasn’t apparent where the trail continues to off the beach cross the highway. It’s not a long hike but once on a beach, it’s easy to loose track of time. I would recommend to end this hike with the beach, maybe have some snacks to enjoy with the ocean view.
