Description

If you're looking for the perfect place to spend a day on the beach, there's no better place than Rodeo Beach. The unique geologic setting of the area provides a spectacular show in the sands, and visitors will be able to see a multi-colored display of pebbles. While the colorful stones and sand may be an incredible sight, remember that these unique features can not be collected.

The beach itself covers nearly 3 miles of coastline and is the perfect place to listen to the pounding surf. Protected by cliffs, the beach is peaceful and enjoyable throughout the year. Take a day to relax and picnic at the beach, or take a dip in the chilly Pacific waters. Swimmers and surfers will delight in the waves, and this beach is a highlight of the area that visitors won't want to miss!

Short Walk: A short walk from Mitchell Road.

Family Friendly: Located near the road, this swimming spot will delight kids who are ready to get their toes wet.

Gem Type: Swimming
