About Estero Bluffs State Park in Cayucos, California

Estero Bluffs State Park encompasses a large chunk of undeveloped land between Highway 1 and the Pacific Ocean north of Cayucos and near the small town of Harmony. Several parking lots exist along the highway and each has a trail or two that cross the wide open lands and take you to the edge of the bluffs looking out over Estero Bay. The northernmost lot has a trail that leads to the biggest beach in the park where Villa Creek meets the ocean at a sandy cove. There are other beaches along this stretch of state beach, but access from the bluff isn’t always easy.

To find Estero Bluffs State Park, drive north on Highway 1 from Cayucos and look for parking areas about four miles from town.
