  • Sculptured beach at Point Reyes national seashore is truly a National treasure! Gorgeous, loooong beach with beautiful flowers along the shore and it's cliffs. It was a nature feast. Kids can have hours of fun here. If you visit at low tides, you can enjoy tide pools too. The cliffs are sculptured by water. There is a secret beach aka point Reyes Crater that is also accessible at low tides and you will have to hike along the for about 2 miles for that. Dogs on leash are allowed on one side of the beach. This beach extends onto Limontaur beach on the right. Parking lot is small with 15 spots. But the Limontaur beach parking lot is huge and you can park there and walk here. Vault toilets are available at both parking lots.
  • Worthy hike. From Bear Valley Visitor Center you hike to the beach. We did about 10-12 miles round trip - hiking and beach walk. It was a beautiful day and there were about 100 people on all the trails. that is judging from the parking lot. Two 375ml bottles of water was a little less than I needed. Take extra water on a hot day. The views are great. You will build memories here. Bikes are allowed on part of the trails, but on all. There are bike racks when you need to switch from riding to walking.
