BEACHES AND PARKS IN THE CENTRAL COAST
The Central Coast isn’t just one coast but many. That’s because you’ll find both busy beaches popular for surfing, volleyball, and just hanging out to wild and pristine areas where you’ll spot sea otters, elephant seals, and even whales. There are graceful, towering sand dunes to climb and protected bays, harbors, and coves popular for kayaking and fishing. You can hike into and explore redwood forests with graceful waterfalls. Explore the Channel Islands Harbor or for the ultimate natural escape head out to Channel Islands National Park for camping beneath the stars.
