About Sculptured Beach in Point Reyes Station, California
Sculptured Beach is a remote beach in the southern portion of Point Reyes National Seashore. The beach is accessible by walking or mountain biking on the Coast Trail from Point Reyes Hostel. It’s also accessible for a day-trip by walking south from Santa Maria Beach at low tide. Just be careful not to get trapped by rising tides as some of the access points get cut off by high water.
Sculptured Beach is known for the many natural “sculptures” in the rocks along the beach. Look for unique geologic features including two rock arches, and many caves and sea stacks. At low tide there is even more to discover at low tide. This is one of the top areas for tide pools on the entire Point Reyes Peninsula.
The steep bluffs behind the beach add to the secluded setting. Because of it’s remote status some visitors consider it a clothing-optional beach.
