|Crescent Bay Point Park is on a bluff overlooking the ocean. Its small, well-manicured, and offers panoramic views of the ocean and the rugged shore. Waves crash onto enormous rock outcroppings below, heaving up ocean spray. As the waves recede, thick cascades of turquoise water plummet down the sides of the black rocks. There is beauty here even on a gray day.
Several paths are paved, so you can visit after (or even during) heavy rains. Stormy waters are especially beautiful on the rocks below. Bring your thermos of coffee and watch the sea lions draped over the rocks. From December through March, you might see migrating whales just beyond the surf zone.
Park on the street in the adjacent residential neighborhood. There are no restrooms.
