Steep Ravine Beach is a small secluded beach at the bottom of a steep canyon below Highway 1 south of Stinson Beach, CA. This is a rocky beach with drift logs and a creek, Webb Creek, which sometimes flows down the ravine.
Day use of the beach is available every day before sunset. Camping and cabins are available in the Rocky Point-Steep Ravine Environmental Campground next to the beach. If interested in staying here, inquire with Mount Tamalpais State Park for reservations.
The road to the camp (Rocky Point Rd) is gated so you have to walk down this paved path from your parking spot along Highway 1. It’s quite a walk down the hill. After you get to the camp, walk north past the cabins to find a route through the rocks to the beach.
At high tide there won’t be much beach left exposed. At low tides Steep Ravine Hot Spring seeps up into the sand next to a big rock north of Steep Ravine Beach. Just be aware that as you follow the rocky shore to the north it is a clothing-optional area near Red Rock Beach.
