About Indian Head Beach in Marina, California

Indian Head Beach is a remote sandy beach between Marina State Beach and Fort Ord State Park Beach. There are large dunes to explore and the beachcombing is hard to beat at this remote location.

In the past, this area has been known as a clothing-optional beach due to its seclusion, but technically it’s on state park property so it’s possible that a park ranger could visit and issue a citation.

To get there from the city of Marina, you must drive to the end of Lake Drive where it ends after going under Highway 1. Look for a parking area for a few cars that is signed for Marina State Park. From your car, walk down the paved road to the end of Lake Court and through the fence onto a trail that ends at the beach. Indian Head Beach is the area south of the access. It’s also possible to get there by walking north on the beach from Fort Ord State Park which Indian Head Beach is part of.
