Sand Dollar Beach at Big Sur

Sand Dollar Day-Use Picnic Area is along the southern Big Sur coast about half-way between Cambria and Big Sur Station. The picnic area and Sand Dollar Beach are popular in the summer months. Surfers ride the waves here as this is one of the few worthy surf spots in all of Big Sur. We arrived here early in the morning before the crowds started coming in and it was so peaceful. It was about a half a mile hike to get down to the beach. Once down there we were surrounded by cliffs, and it felt very secluded. There were a lot of marine life to discover, such as hermit crabs, star fish and sand crabs. The best part was that we actually found a sand dollar, which I heard was not very common. The water also looked very clean. This is one of my favorite beaches I've visited in my life.
