Arroyo De La Cruz Beach in San Simeon, California

The Arroyo De La Cruz Beach Access is another one of the state-owned properties included in Hearst San Simeon State Park. This is a sandy beach at the mouth of the creek in Arroyo de la Cruz just south of Point Sierra Nevada. There is a pull-out along Highway 1 south of the bridge over Arroyo de la Cruz about three miles from the entrance to Piedras Blancas Light Station Natural Area. Look for a road gate next to the highway about quarter-mile south from the bridge. Next to the bridge is a pedestrian opening. This beach access requires a walk along a double-track trail that heads north to the beach. A narrow footpath follows the bluff to the beach and is another access option. Since Arroyo De La Cruz Beach is not visible from the highway, few people know it exists. So if you head out here it is likely that you’ll have this large sandy beach all to yourself. Just off-shore is La Cruz Rock which is covered with birds and the associated droppings. This rock and several others in the area are part of the California Coastal National Monument.
