About Moonstone Beach County Park in Trinidad, California
Moonstone Beach County Park is at the north side of the Little River mouth near Trinidad. The beach is popular with surfers and also with families that can play safely in the slow river current. Depending on the time of year you visit, the river can be wide or just a trickle.
Moonstone is a picturesque beach with rocks and larger sea stacks poking up out of the surf. The large two-humped rock island known as Camel Rock is visible to the north.
At the north end of Moonstone Beach there are hidden caves to explore at lower tides. South of the river mouth is Little River State Beach which requires wading through the river to be able to wander away from the crowds. In the summer months it is warm enough to swim in Little River.
To get there, start in Trinidad and turn off Main Street onto Scenic Drive. Follow this scenic windy road until you see a sign for Moonstone Grill. The beach is right below the restaurant.
