Emma Wood State beach offers consistent punchy and hollow peaks breaking mainly right. Surf conditions are favorable during the summer months.

Park your car along the famous Pacific Coast Highway and watch the waves roll in. Go out surfing, kiteboarding, swimming, or kayaking. Emma Wood State Beach is a fairly exposed beach and reef break that has reliable surf. Summer offers the most-favored conditions for surfing. 

Both breaks get crowded quickly. Campground here. Access is at the south end of old PCH. Park in the State car park (fees included).
