Bolsa Chica State Beach in Huntington Beach, California

Bolsa Chica State Beach is a three mile long wide sandy beach in Huntington Beach, CA. Due to its location and size this is a popular beach for sunbathing. With typical Huntington Beach waves, it’s a top local surf beach too. Early in the morning and around dusk, you might see folks casting into the surf as it’s a reliable fishing spot with corbina, perch, and more.

This state park has a campground for RV campers but it’s just a converted paved parking lot and they don’t allow tents (bummer).

If you like bonfires Bolsa Chica has fire rings, however call ahead as they are only allowed to be used every other day from 6 am to 10 pm.

This beach starts at Warner Avenue and extends south to Seapoint Avenue. North of Warner Ave is Sunset Beach and south of Seapoint Ave is Huntington Dog Beach and Huntington City Beach. Bolsa Chica State Beach has an abundance of parking in huge lots that line all of Pacific Coast Highway behind the beach.

Across PCH is Bolsa Chica Ecological Reserve with birding, wildlife watching, hiking, and biking opportunities. This beach and the reserve make up one of the top birding destinations in California. The paved Bolsa Chica Multi-Use Trail & Bike Path is behind the beach and connects to Huntington Beach Bike Trail south of here for a long bike route off the main streets.
