Pfeiffer Beach

Big Sur, California

Pfeiffer Beach Professional Review and Guide

"Pfeiffer Beach is a white sand beach surrounded by towering headland cliffs within the Los Padres National Forest. Pfeiffer Point extends outward at the south end of the beach. Dramatic offshore sea stacks have been sculpted by the wind and pounding surf, creating sea caves, eroded natural arches, and blowholes. On the secluded beach, Sycamore Creek forms a small lagoon as it empties into the Pacific. This is a beach-combing walk along the shoreline. Leashed dogs are allowed."
