This is a great spot. Our family has been coming for years. It's dog friendly (leashed). Although every time I've come, there have been well behaved dogs off leash. There are hiking trails all around this beach. Everyone of them with breathtaking views of the...More

This place is absolutely amazing. You can walk up the hills and see the ocean from a vantage point. The sunset is breathtaking. Be aware that you can end up in a huge traffic jam coming back home. That's because there's a single line tunnel...More

Rodeo beach was awesome. The black sand was so marvelous I had to take some home. All the colored pebbles that make it up were very artistically inspiring to me. We hiked up the trail and looked down on the surfers hitting the waves. The...More

I always like to discover new places. Rodeo beach was an amazing experience. It's a clean enough beach, not the sand..if you appreciate looking at some beautiful scenery then you'd love it. There's a hiking trail & bike trail along the Pacific Ocean.the trails go...More

I actually came here on a cold Saturday night to take photos of the sky. What I captured was something amazing...at night! I doubt many people will come here at the time I got there (7pm), but at 7pm on a cold February night -...More

Interesting that just across the bay is a busy city called San Francisco. On this side of the bay is secluded and good for the soul. That is what Rodeo Beach is. A respite from the reality of making a living and the daily mundane...More

Amazing and unique Beach on the California coast. If you come here looking for whites and you're not going to find them. In fact, if you come here looking for white sand you're missing the whole point. The geology of this beach is amazing. All...More

We stopped off here briefly on our way elsewhere and we're taken aback by the beauty. A very quiet, clean beach with beautiful cliffs and water. It was easy to park, a 2 minute walk across a lovely bridge and there you are, in one...More

First off, there's a place to park your bike or car. The beach itself is small smooth gravel which is a little difficult to walk on. Beautifully surrounded by the Pacific in front, the valley and pond behind, and steep hills on each side. The...More

We have visited this beach time and time again. There are rarely crowds of people and the tranquility of the view and the beating of the waves upon the shore have always been comforting. A hike in the hills is also very nice. On a...More
