This quaint ocean-side community is home to about 650 residents. It boasts one of the best swimming beaches in northern California, where to the delight of children, the water is shallow and the sand fine and perfect for castle construction. Dolphins, seals, and whales can be seen offshore at certain times of the year. Picturesque beachside buildings house art galleries and restaurants, for casual beach fare and seafood with a view. Trails lead along coastal cliffs with spectacular views, and through open pastures. Audubon Canyon Ranch and the Martin Griffin Preserve are a thrill for birders, with hundreds of species, and nesting colonies of egrets and blue herons.
