The short, sandy trail to the beach is the threshold into a surreal canvas of white sand against a backdrop of wave-sculpted rock arches. This beach’s isolated beauty and firmly packed sand combine to create a unique escape where you and your dog can spend anywhere from an hour to a day walking, picnicking, and savoring your good fortune that you can share this pristine, hidden beach together.

This is a very good beach - worth going to - but not the best beach ever. Definitely some interesting aspects, and no longer difficult at all to get to. Maybe the only cool bch in Big Sur.
