“hike, swim, fish and beachcomb”

The beach is located near the historic town of San Simeon along Highway One and gives visitors the opportunity to hike, swim, fish and beachcomb. A popular beach spot, this protected cove also offers visitors pier fishing and deep-sea fishing from chartered boats. Ocean kayaking is also popular. Picnic tables, barbecue grills and restrooms are available. 
This day use area offers 24 picnic sites, 150 parking spaces, restrooms, water faucets, barbecue grill stands and easy beach access. Recreational activities include picnicking, swimming, fishing, boating, kayaking and sunbathing. There is a kayak and boogie board concession in operation with equipment for rent.

In general, San Simeon's climate is very mild. Summer temperatures range from the high 50s to low 90s, while winter ranges between the low 40s and high 60s. The average rainfall is 22 inches with the majority of precipitation occurring in winter and spring from November to April. During the winter months fog is common along the coast, but normally burns off by late morning. However, a sweatshirt or sweater and light windbreaker can greatly increase the comfort level on foggy mornings and cool evenings.

We were here this morning (sep 2014) and we were so lucky, we got to see lots of dolphins, sea lions and whales! The whales were so magnificent, a pleasure to watch and so close by! Great experience.. We didn't go to the castle, this was much better for us :D
