Pescadero State Beach at Sunset
Pescadero State Beach, California
The stretch of shoreline along California's Pacific Coast Highway between La Honda Road and Pescadero Road is one of my favorites. It has three state beaches in about three miles of coastline, including this one, Pescadero State Beach. I'm not sure why I like this coast so much. It's not the most dramatic in the area, nor is it the most gentle... but perhaps it's a good compromise between the two. The beaches are walkable and not treacherous, but there are still some nice cliffs to give them that Pacific Coast feel. They are also quieter than most beaches around here, and offer plenty of solitude.
