What a great spot to visit and see, my mistake. I thought this was the Pebble Beach in Monterey County where I am living.

One of the few dog friendly beach! Beautiful! Nice quiet place to sit and watch the wave or look at hermit crabs in the tide pool and fresh smell of the salted ocean and the breeze is amazing! Love it!
This is a nice place to stop and walk around and there are a few trails and picnic tables to watch the waves on the rocks below
