Catch Sunset on Asilomar State Beach

Originally added by Karissa Frye

Escape the crowds on this beautifully preserved beach.

Asilomar, or “refuge by the sea” definitely lives up to its name. The beach is expansive and less-populated than other nearby destinations. With large sandbars and rocky outcroppings, it is a great place to enjoy sunset. 

This beach is also known for its premium surf, so expect a show from the locals! There are many staircases right off the road that lead you down to the ocean. Trails can be spotted all along the coast, and are well-maintained. There is nothing quite like sunset on the ocean with a bottle of champagne and good company.
