Pfeiffer Beach Day Use Area - Review
Dog friendly and crescent-shaped beach, purple sands, huge double rocks are some of the significant features that describe this beautiful Pfeiffer Beach. The huge waves of the sea crashes along the coast and windy atmosphere of the place makes the sea too dangerous for swimming. However, you would love to walk around the beach as you get to enjoy incredible views of the sea. Dig your finger into the wet sand and you get to see the purple sand. It happens because of the manganese garnet that gets washed down the uneven hill slope. However, if you plan for an overnight camping, Pfeiffer Beach is not the destination.

Pfeiffer Beach Day Use Area, Big Sur Reviews
One of the most beautiful beaches in California. This wonderful Beach truly defines serenity. You must add to your bucket list of beaches 😊
WOW, just WOW. A place you just can't miss, but you could miss due to poor signage. We were expecting to see only a purple sand beach, but pleasantly surprised with the great views and waves pounding big rocks which made huge holes in the rocks. Surrounded by mud hills tempting us to climb them. But dangerous to do so as they can collapse. Big place for kids to have a of fun. Great sunset views as well.
The road that takes you to the beach is a narrow, one lane road. $10 fee for vehicle. You can find traces of Purple sand on this beach! It is a clean, dog friendly beach! The water is cold like most California beaches. Overall enjoyed it! I suggest you get food and water. There are public restrooms that look clean but smell bad.
There is no signage indicating the turn for Pfeiffer Beach. However, the turn off isn't hard to miss. Once you leave Pfeiffer Big Sur SP heading south, you'll cross the Big Sur River. That bridge is level with the roadway. Once you cross the bridge, watch for the first road that you can make a right turn onto. The turn is kind of at an angle and there is a sign that says "RV's and trailers not recommended". Credit from Tripadvisor user.
What can I say - it's a beautiful park on the California coast. All of the state parks are easy to find and parking was easy.
