This beach is about 10 minutes south of Pacifica.  It is an easy drive and a less-easy place to approach.  It is surrounded by cliffs and the parking lot is across busy highway 1.  Fortunately there is a nice set of stairs which provide a nice workout on the way back up with no danger whatsoever.  The soft golden granite sand is perfect for walking and photographing too.  Here is a view down the beach looking south as low fog slides under a brilliant red sunset in the high clouds.
