Spooner’s cove is one of those small hidden beaches where you can watch stunning sunsets in a peaceful environment. Located in Montana De Oro State Park, the small gem is surrounded by countless hikes and camping spot. It is also one of the only areas of the park that is dog friendly. If you are looking to have a romantic location, Spooner’s cove is a prime spot.

It is also a fantastic location for diving and free diving. You can dive straight off the beach and follow either sides of the cove to head out towards the open water (Be aware of rocks). You’ll find kelp forests about a quarter mile out, or some lost ship parts towards the south side.
