Sometimes we can never get enough beach time. After I returned from my trip to Grand Cayman in October, the very next day we headed to Bean Hollow State Beach. We had never been there before and wanted to check it out. It’s a small little cove with warm sand and strong waves. Not very advisable for swimming, but it was protected from the wind by the cliffs, and the parking lot is very small so not many people crowd it.
Exploring the bluffs is one of my favorite parts about living in California. Most are okay to explore but you need to watch for unsupported areas and areas that are closed for rehabilitation. Coastal erosion is a big problem here, so stay safe and be respectful. I love all of the iceplant that grows along the rocks. It blooms in purple and yellow flowers during the wetter seasons.
