About Black Point Beach in Sea Ranch, California

Black Point Beach is a public beach located in the Sea Ranch community. This wide cove is just north of Black Point Landing in the south part of Sea Ranch. The dark sand beach is backed by steep rocky cliffs that wrap the length of it. Sea Ranch Lodge is a luxury hotel nearby that is just walking distance to the beach. At the lodge is the Black Point Grill featuring a seasonal menu with local ingredients and a large wine list. The parking lot for the beach is on the west side of Highway 1 just north of the entrance to the lodge. Toilets are provided at the parking lot. A quarter mile long access trail cuts across the open meadow and ends at the edge of a cliff where you’ll find a huge staircase and safe passage to the beach below. Enjoy the public beach, but note that the property around the beach and access trail is private. Black Point Beach can have strong rip currents and is dangerous for swimming.
