Moss Landing State Beach

May contain: beach, coast, nature, outdoors, sea, shoreline, water, soil, and scenery

Offshore fishing, surfing, windsurfing and horseback riding are popular activities. The beach is a favorite place for picnics because the dunes protect it from afternoon winds. This area is an important stop along the Pacific Flyway so birdwatching is popular.  Water recreation is dangerous because of strong rip currents.
Location-Directions: The beach is located on Jetty Road in Moss Landing and 16 miles north of Monterey via Highway 1. Open sunrise until sunset.
