Sheltered, easy landing on pebble beach at mid to high water. More difficult, large rocks, boulders, weed at lower water levels. W winds may bend to blow out of Sea Otter Cove.

Camp on beach. Sheltered. Random wilderness camping permitted. Camping fees apply 1 May to 30 September. Either pre-pay permit via Internet or at San Josef Bay trailhead, but no reservable sites.
