About DeHaven Creek Beach in Westport, California

DeHaven Creek Beach is a day-use beach at the southern property border of Westport-Union Landing State Beach north of Westport. The bluff at DeHaven has eroded enough to cause the State Parks Dept. to close the area, but it’s still possible to park along the highway and hike down to the beach. Most of this shoreline is narrow and rocky. The beach at the mouth of DeHaven Creek, however, is wide enough to safely spread out and relax. The creek cuts a deep channel through the sand which makes it fun for kids to play in. At low tide you can venture north along the shore below the bluff. Parking can be found along Highway 1 outside of a locked gate for a state park road that has been destroyed by the crumbling bluff. This old road makes a nice walking surface along the bluff top. Across the highway is DeHaven Valley Farm which used to be a local B&B. State Park campgrounds can be found at Abalone Point and next to the beach at Howard Creek north of here. Just to the south is another camping option at Westport Beach RV Park & Campground.
