San Simeon Vacation Travel Information

William R. Hearst Memorial State Beach in San Simeon, California

William Randolph Hearst Memorial State Beach is the beach nearest Hearst Castle and not far from the town of San Simeon. The beach entrance road is opposite the road to the castle visitor center. There is a large parking lot with picnic tables near a long wooden fishing pier and the beach access. San Simeon Cove is protected by San Simeon Point which juts out southeasterly in front of San Simeon Bay. For this reason, it’s a safe beach for walking in the surf or for swimming near the pier. On many days there is even a sea kayaking outfitter renting kayaks for seeing the cove from the water. The farther you go south of the pier the rougher the waves are and the rockier the beach is. North of the pier the beach is outside of the state park property, but you can still walk there. While you are here stop into the Coastal Discovery Center which has interactive exhibits and educational programs for kids that are focused on the history and the animals found in this region. Admission is free and it’s open Friday through Sunday. Sebastian’s San Simeon General Store, a state historical landmark, is walking distance or a short drive down SLO San Simeon Road from the pier parking lot. The store has a cafe with outside seating and the Hearst Ranch Winery inside for wine tasting. Their hours are 11 to 4 Wednesday through Sunday so plan to visit the store if you are at Hearst Beach on those days.
