About Manresa State Beach in Watsonville, California
Manresa State Beach is a day-use facility in the La Selva Beach area near Watsonville, CA. The main day use area of Manresa State Beach has a large paved parking lot on the bluff above a wide sandy beach on Monterey Bay. On nice days, the lot can fill up, but the beach is large enough to accommodate large crowds. Two ramps and a long stairway leads down to the beach.
Be careful of sneaker waves when playing in the surf. Cold water and strong rip currents make swimming dangerous at beaches in this area.
Getting there is simple. Just turn south onto San Andreas Road in La Selva and look for signs to the state beach.
Manresa State Beach has a separate unit with a campground and another day-use parking lot. It’s called the Manresa Uplands and it’s located farther south on San Andreas Road at Sand Dollar Drive.
