8/16 naked beach party, Gray Whale Cove
World Naked Beach Party
Saturday, 16 August 2008
Gray Whale Cove - near Devil's Slide,
south of Pacifica
[ on Pacific coast, northern CA, south of SF ]
World Naked Beach Party Day is happening in various places
around the world on this day. Let's make this an ongoing
yearly beach gathering.
Gray Whale Cove
The beach is easy to get to;
but there may not (presently) be a sign.
The drive is about half an hour from downtown San Francisco.
From downtown SF, get on the 280 and stay on that highway heading south/west. At some point it splits... stay to the right where it says Highway 1. On Highway 1 [the old coastal road, sometimes blocked by rock-slides], once you are leaving Pacifica you are only about 2 to 3 miles away. You first drive through a forested area, which then emerges onto a spectacular coastal road. Watch out for large parking area on the left (east side of the road [inland]); and turn in there.
Coming south from SF-- if you get to Montara State Beach,
you have gone too far south.
Walkiing down the cliff:
The trail down to the beach starts a bit north of the parking lot.
BE CAREFUL when CROSSING THE HIGHWAY,
especially if you are distracted by carrying stuff.
CARS MOVE QUICKLY AROUND THOSE BENDS!
Part way down the trail, note the location of the porta-toilets.
The rest of the way down is on well-built stairs. When you get down to the beach, stick to the right, walking north up the beach, past the rock outcrop. You have arrived!
Driving directions from Santa Cruz: Go northward on old highway #1, well past Half Moon Bay, and past Montara. Once you pass Montara State Beach, you are getting very close. After the highway goes up a hill, start to watch out for the parking lot, on your right [that is, inland].
