Inside Pacific Beach State Park

The primary attractions at this state park are the secluded location and the dramatic backdrop of the Pacific Ocean. The crisp air is refreshing and relaxing while you are beachcombing, and you'll want to keep an eye out for the sand dollars that often litter the beach. Kite-flying is a popular activity, and many will enjoy just hanging out around a campfire on the sand. Digging for clams is permitted seasonally, and while the strong rip currents and drift logs can pose a hazard, you are allowed to swim, kayak, and fish in the surf. The park offers eight unsheltered picnic tables for day visitors on a first-come, first-serve basis.
