HIDDEN BEACHES:

Cowell Ranch State Beach  (5 minutes south of Half Moon Bay)
www.parks.ca.gov/?page_id=24322


Pirate’s Cove (0.7 mile hike south of Muir Beach in Marin)
From the Muir Beach parking lot, head across the walking bridge, and up the Fire Road, where you’ll find the main trail.  From our experience, it’s best to hit the beach on a low tide, as it’s super small, but very stunning if you time it right!

McClure’s Beach (16 miles west of Pt. Reyes Station in Marin)
For more information on McClures, along with directions to a host of Marin beaches, log onto: www.parks.ca.gov/?page_id=24322
