This is a great beach for kids/families. You can even bring your dog on one long stretch of the beach. There are many trailheads here but my kids just wanted to hang on the beach and play. They played and dug in the sand and made sand castles. We saw lots of birds, a sea lion, and crabs. People even... More

This is one of the best beaches at Pt Reyes for walking. You can walk all the way from the parking lot to the entrance to the estuary. It's quite a walk. The beach is lovely and clean. It's in the bay so the wave action isn't too rough. The other side of the spit is the estuary and there... More

It was a fine beach to walk. We also hiked on a parallel trail along the spit. It was a lovely experience. There were shells and a number of interesting birds.

Went on a breezy day in March, but the beach is huge, scenic, and full of birdlife darting in and out of the water. Well worth the trip.

See california as it was 300 years ago; a simple lovely stretch of untouched beach. No services by beach, no tacky cafes, so bring food and water or better yet, wine, and plan on spending the day. if the wine is up, it can be very tough. Great birding on the estero side of the beach.

As beaches go, I found Limantour to be fairly boring. Just a long, flat stretch of beach. I prefer rock outcroppings, tall stacks and tidal pools. Just a personal preference.

It was lovely to stroll along the beach. I saw four sea lions in the water quite close to shore. It was peaceful and pretty--but it got even better at sunset. DP saw a green flash, but I was too bust taking photos!

Water much too cold for swimming but enjoyed sitting in sand on a sunny day. Very clean and picturesque. Bathroom facilities at entrance.

Limantour beach is an amazing beach that is total relaxation. The walk from the parking lot is not far, but you are walking through sand so it is a workout. The beach was not crowded. Although it is whale watching season we did not see any whales, but the sea lions were swimming along the beach front. They were so... More

It is great to get outdoors and walk in nature along scenic pathways to arrive at a pristine beach without the crowds. The farther you walk the less crowded it is so I prefer these types of destinations. This is about 1 mile long on the Pacific Ocean with beautiful sandy beach.
