A few relatives came for a visit this weekend, so the weekend gateway had to be to a place that is family-friendly. Luckily, the Crystal Cove State Park is not really far and it offers tons of great excitements for all family members.
The trip to Crystal Cove State Park was pretty smooth. We arrived early in the morning and visited the Pelican Point straight away. Dolphins can usually be seen early in the morning, but we weren’t fortunate enough and managed to catch only a glimpse of a group from afar.
There are a lot of great spots to visit within the Crystal Cove State Park – especially since this part is over 2,400 acres and has 3.5 miles of beach to explore – but we continued our day by swimming in one of the tide pools; a refreshing experience nonetheless and it is very safe for kids as well.
Pelican Point is famous for being a good surfing area, but the main attraction is certainly the gorgeous view. Whether it is just the natural sceneries or the wildlife you want to enjoy, you will be able to catch them at Pelican Point in Crystal Cove State Park.
The Crystal Cove State Park is also famous for hosting plenty of adventurous activities. The Moro Canyon is a famous camping ground, surrounded by undeveloped woodland just waiting to be explored. Many cyclists also love to visit Crystal Cove State Park for its dirt road and single-track routes.
The views towards the inland hills are also very interesting. That is exactly why some of us decided to grab a couple of kayaks and paddle a bit further from the beach. The beach line stretching from Little Treasure Cove all the way to the tip of Pelican Point is just too good to miss.
