Fuller’s Beach in Big Sur, California

Fuller’s Beach is a little-known remote beach along the north Big Sur coast. It’s mostly used by dedicated surfers and shy nudists. This rocky beach is just north of Grimes Point and it’s difficult to find and even harder to reach. About 0.9 mile south of the Big Sur Inn along Highway 1 there is a pull-out parking area on the east side across from a telephone pole on the west side. Next to the pole is an unmarked trailhead for a footpath that descends the steep hillside to Fuller’s Beach. See our map for the location of the parking area. The trail is steep and switches back and forth through poison oak on the way down. Crazy surfers carry their boards down this trail, but it is reportedly a challenging surf spot. It’s best to avoid high tide when visiting this spot as most of the sand will be wet. Even though the access to Fuller’s Beach is privately-owned, it is rarely policed.
