Moss Landing State Beach
About Moss Landing State Beach in Moss Landing, California
Moss Landing State Beach is just north of the Moss Landing Harbor Channel entrance in the town of Moss Landing, CA. This is a long sandy beach backed by dunes. The parking lot is on the bay side of the peninsula and has a great spot for launching kayaks to explore the harbor and Elkhorn Slough. Moss Landing State Beach is known for fishing, surfing, kayaking, birding and wildlife watching. Sea otters are regulars in the waters near the parking area. The water is cold and rip currents make it dangerous for swimming on the ocean side of the peninsula. Walking north on the beach leads to a remote area with wetlands in Bennett Slough behind the beach. If you kept walking in this direction you would eventually reach Zmudowski State Beach. To get to Moss Landing State Beach, take the Jetty Road turnoff from Highway 1 just north of the channel. There is a parking lot at the end of the road and room for cars along Jetty Road when the lot fills up. Near the park entrance is a boat launch and the Sea Harvest Fish Market and Restaurant.
