    It can get crowded. I was able to share a fire pit easily with another group. Parking can be tricky. Police will extinguish your fire around 9:00pm.

    The cement stairways leading from the parking lot down to the sand are numbered, starting with 1 on the north end (closest to cliff house). Dogs are allowed off leash from stair1 to 21; on-leash south

    Pro: it is good for recreation. Good for flying the kite. Good for 🏄‍♀️,kite boarding, body surfing etc. Con: Super cold year round. Conditions not so pleasant. Sand flying around. Tickling.

    There's sand (it's a beach). A lot of sand. There's water (it's an ocean). Enough water to go all the way to Japan. There's a beach & there's an ocean. It's called "Ocean Beach". Makes sense to me.

    If you're here at sunset on a clear day, watch for a "green flash" just above the sun. You'll need some luck, though—it's rare to see it and it only lasts a few seconds!
