Santa Cruz Vacation Travel Information

Strawberry Beach at Wilder Ranch State Park in Santa Cruz, California

Strawberry Beach is a remote sandy beach in Wilder Ranch State Park north of Santa Cruz, CA. It’s probably the least visited beach in the park and is a great reward for hikers willing to seek it out. Look for a parking spot at the 4 Mile Beach parking area along Highway 1 (a four mile drive from western Santa Cruz). Then start hiking the Ohlone Bluffs Trail toward the ocean. You’ll pass by 4 Mile Beach and 3 Mile Beach on the way to this secluded spot. Walk the trail around the beach until you find the access path behind the beach. Like the other secluded beaches in the area this one sometimes has clothing-optional visitors. There is room for a few cars outside the 3 Mile Beach gate across from the address 3050 Coast Road on California Highway 1. This parking spot is more direct, but the spots are sometimes already taken. If you park here do not to block the gate.
