Explore San Carpoforo Creek


Added by Elena Pearson

A great place to explore and occasionally surf!

Just south of Ragged Point, San Carpoforo Creek is an open beach that is fun to explore. There is a quick hike from the highway to the beach.  During heavy rain years, the creek will be flowing deeper, so you might need to do some swimming. There are waves occasionally here with a couple of surfers. The conditions are fickle and it isn’t the easiest place to check so it limits the crowd. 

This is a great place to get out and stretch the legs if you're on a long drive up or down HWY 1 or if you want to relax at the beach / picnic area.
