After a short hike down to the water you can enjoy a scenic beach. When the tide is low you can access another section of the beach which is relatively private. 

This beach is really easy to get to. Just follow Pierce Point Road until you see the sign to the beach. It's an easy hike down from the parking lot. 

There is very little shade, so make sure to bring some sunscreen. Be extremely cautious with getting into the water. There is likely underwater currents that can be very dangerous. As with most beaches in Point Reyes swimming is not recommended.
