New Brighton State Beach
Santa Cruz County, CA
Description: Walk this wide beach or head up to the short trails up on the bluff.
You can walk on the beach for miles because this state beach is adjacent to another one that also allows dogs - Seacliff State Beach. Or walk up the short trail to the bluffs through Monterey Pine and Coastal Live Oaks and get great views of the beach, cliffs and the northern part of Monterey Bay. If you get lucky you may even see dolphins frolicking in the water!
