Gray Whale Cove State Beach

A small, sheltered beach (about 500 feet long), Gray Whale Cove State Beach is situated just south of Devil’s Slide, at the bottom of steep bluffs that shield it from view of Highway 1. A steep trail leads down to the beach. Gray

The beach is named for the frequent sightings of gray whales from the beach. In spring, wildflowers brighten the bluffs above the beach. The granitic rocks of Montara Mountain are the main source of sand.

There is a small picnic area on the bluff above. The beach is open for day use only, and dogs are not allowed.
