    This beautiful state park has short hikes, breath taking views, a private beach, and camp sites! Did I mention it also has a waterfall that runs into the ocean? The trails are easy for families with children and the trails are fairly short. The scenery is amazing in every way!

    Garrapata State Beach

    Garrapatta State Beach is often passed by since it is not shown on yelp for directions. It is available on Maps if you plan accordingly. This beach is a must see due to its beautiful landscape views. If you enjoy beaches that are less crowded with phenomenal views, this place is for you.

    Nepenthe Restaurant

    Looking to have lunch/dinner with a view? Nepenthe is well known for its breath taking ocean views as you enjoy some food and drinks. They have an outside patio that has a 360 view or you can enjoy the view from inside. Either way, this place will take your breath away.

    Pfeiffer Beach

    Many visit Pfeiffer Beach for the keyhole rock but it has much more to it. The beach has a mixture of purple quartz sand, lots of creative rock formations, and beautiful sunsets that are worth a photo. If you're lucky, you may see some dolphins splashing through the ocean.
