Crystal Cove Beach
Below the Resort sits one of the most beautiful beaches the West Coast has to offer. Distinguished as a National Natural Landmark, its three miles of pristine beach are excellent for strolling and exploring the many tide pools, as well as a swim, surf or dive into the ocean. The Beachcomber, Bootlegger Bar and Shake Shack are also perfect for a quick bite overlooking the ocean or a sunset drink.
Crystal Cove Beach Experience
Complimentary coach service, including a beach bag equipped with towels, sunscreen and water, from Pelican Hill make for a seamless day. We also arrange for chairs, umbrellas and other amenities to be waiting for your arrival.
Crystal Cove Historic District
What was a fun escape from city life in the 1920s is now a charming place where cottages line the beach and feature rotating history and art exhibits, as well as a gift shop.
Crystal Cove Beach also features bluff-top trails for jogging, biking, hiking and walking with an incredible view of the Pacific. Picnic tables are also available both by the bluffs and throughout the state park where most of the higher aerial-view jogging, hiking and biking trails begin.
