About Arroyo Laguna Beach in San Simeon, California

Arroyo Laguna Beach is a windsurfing and kiteboarding spot along the northern San Luis Obispo Coast. The beach is at the mouth of Oak Knoll Creek which is commonly called Arroyo Laguna. This is another one of the many beaches that are part of Hearst San Simeon State Park.

There is a parking lot for Arroyo Laguna Beach along Highway 1 about two miles north of the entrance to Hearst Castle. The state owns the beach and land between the highway and the ocean from the parking lot to where the sandy beach ends. Feel free to enjoy the area at the mouth of the creek or venture across the creek and head south as far as you’d like.

Heed any signs you see at the trailhead as the beach is closed (even to seal viewing) from December 15 through April 30. During this time, all water-based activities are still allowed if you can walk across/around the beach without disturbing the seals. If you want to watch seals just drive up the coast a little to Piedras Blanca Elephant Seal Rookery.
