Find Zen at Thousand Steps Beach

Getting to Thousand Steps Beach may take a little effort, but it’s well worth getting a little winded for the views. Don’t worry, it’s not actually 1,000 steps. It’s more like 218. But, at the end of those steps beach-goers are rewarded with a nearly empty plot of sand and one of the best short breaks around. Visitors can, of course, just choose to lay in the sand and bask in the glorious Southern California sun. But, those feeling a bit more adventurous can take a stroll down to the beach’s famed sea cave. Walk south along the shore to come to the cave, which is actually more like a tunnel as you can walk all the way through it to the small cove on the other side. For those really invested in cave discovery visitors can also walk north to find the Totuava cave. But, remember to keep an eye on the tides for both caves as they are inaccessible at high tide.
