Seal Cove (also called Cypress Cove) is a secluded beach in Moss Beach, CA. The cove is within Fitzgerald Marine Reserve and is a real treat at low tide when tide pools are exposed for exploration. Behind the beach are trails that lead into a cypress forest that feels like something out of the movies with long shadows and unique tree trunks. It’s a fun hike with great vistas out over the ocean.
To get here from Highway 1, follow signs to the historic Moss Beach Distillery and then turn north on Beach Way until you get to Cypress Avenue. There is a park entrance here and a long stairway access that leads down to the beach. The streets are narrow so parking spaces are limited. You could also use the main Fitzgerald Reserve parking lot on Lake Street at the north end of the park and walk the Bluff Trail to the Seal Cove Beach access.
