  • A great place to walk, hike, or run depending on your fitness level. The stairs to the beach are much safer than the cliffs. Please be mindful and stay on established paths the folks here are trying to restore some of the natural beauty.

  • Beautiful cliff views overlooking forever views. Some great spots to sit and watch the sunset. Dogs welcome but must be on leash. Lots of runners too. Impressive cliffs and rocks with splashing waves. Surfers love this place. Awesome homes to dream over while walking over cliffs. So much to see yet so peaceful. #Clydeafornia Enjoy Mother Nature At its best.

  • With all the hustle and bustle of our lives take the time to see the sunset. It's so beautiful to see the sun (93,000,000 miles away) set over the horizon. It's a reminder of how big our universe is and how small our home is. Also, take time to see the sunrise. You owe it to yourself.

  • This is an amazing place and a little adventure. Lots of people stay on top of the cliffs and take in the view, but some people go down to the beach. The beach is mostly about the adventure of getting there and being among the great scenery. If you’re just looking for a day at the beach, look elsewhere. There are lots of sand fleas and the water tends to be rough and rocky. We wanted an adventure, so we went down to the beach and loved it. It looks like the area is under construction right now, so there is no easy way to get down to the beach. You’ll have to brave a cliff-side path that is pretty steep in some parts or you can take the (closed) staircase and walk across some big rocks. But be mindful of the tide. If you go down for sunset, you’ll have to climb the cliff back up because you won’t be able to get from the beach to the stairs. It all depends on your proclivity for adventure and mild risk. I wouldn’t recommend it for kids necessarily, at least not by yourself. You’ll likely need help. Also, the restrooms are at the top of the cliffs.

  • There were quite a few clouds so it dulled the sunset just a bit but still very beautiful place. Hope to return and bring our boys. They would absolutely love it.
