Catch a Sunset at Bean Hollow State Beach

Bean Hollow SB

Bean Hollow is a great little spot in Pescadero to catch a legendary West Coast sunset.

There are a bunch of places to photograph this beach if you head north on the trail that runs along the beach.

There is parking at the beach but it can fill up quickly!

The only warning you need is about the tide. Make sure you are watching it the entire time because it can creep up on you and will sweep you and your gear into the ocean without a moments notice.

A Favorite Dog Beach

This beach is more pebbly than sandy, but is dog-friendly and has free parking. Come early to avoid crowds.
