Option #2: Crystal Cove State Beach
If you prefer the beach scene to the mountains, skip the hike and go directly to Crystal Cove State Beach. Get out your boards and beach gear, since this beach has excellent waves for surfers and boarders. Get in touch with your inner ecologist and visit the tide pool to see the magnificent home of sea anemones, mussels, barnacles, chitons, limpets, hermit crabs, and star fish.
