Fodor's Review

The narrow stretch of fine sand and rocks here make this little beach great for walking, light swimming, kayaking, and scuba diving. Clustered boulders create cozy spots for couples and picknickers, and because of the limited parking available along PCH, it's rarely crowded. Originally owned by the stars of the Bonanza TV series, the beach was donated to the state after Blocker (who played Hoss) died in 1972. Locals still know this as Corral Beach. Amenities: lifeguards; toilets. Best for: solitude; walking.
