  • Garrapata State Park has 2 miles (3.2 km) of beachfront, with coastal hiking and a 50-foot (15 m) climb to a view of the Pacific. The park offers diverse coastal vegetation with trails running from ocean beaches into dense coast redwood groves. The park also features coastal headlands at Soberanes Point.[4] California sea lions, harbor seals and sea otters frequent the coastal waters while gray whales pass close by during their yearly migration. Please visit to get some breath taking views & aqua blue water colour. I love ❤️ it .
  • Breath-taking, beautiful, majestic, serene, colorful, opulent in natural wonder. This entire strip off the HWY 1 is worth visiting and spending a few days in to absorb & enjoy. I would recommend that anyone considering visiting stop thinking about it & just visit- you won’t regret it. Just a few tips: give yourself plenty of time, be patient with parking, forget your phone exists; enjoy.
