Sunset Beach Travel GuideEdit This The best resource for sights, hotels, restaurants, bars, what to do and see
Cliffs Long rolling, soft, easy waves. Good for beginner to intermediate. Access to the beach is difficult, and it's a steep walk down the cliffs. Parking is metered. How to Get There Between Warner Ave. and Golden West St. on Pacific Coast Highway. Huntington Beach Pier Consistent breaks on any swell. North side has a nice right all the way from outside to a fast inside section. Southside has a nice left, fast inside section. Both sides get very crowded. The pier is located at Main St. and Pacific Coast Highway in Huntington Beach. The south side of the pier is where most championships have been held.
Newport Beach River Jetty The Surf Very shallow break and fast. This is an advanced spot to surf. How to Get There Follow Pacific Coast Highway south of Brookhurst St. to just over the Santa Ana River Bridge. Make a right at Orange Ave.
Surf Peaky, fun waves right or left, but it gets very
crowded. How to Get There Blackies is the term
used for the Newport Beach Pier area -- follow the signs
south on Newport Blvd. from Pacific Coast Highway. It is
the first pier on the right.
The Wedge Mostly summer swells. Bodysurfers or body boarders rule the spot. However, starting to see more people surf. It usually only breaks over 8 ft. right on the beach. How to Get There The Wedge is at the end of the Balboa Peninsula - follow Balboa Blvd. south from Pacific Coast Highway until you reach a split in the road. Follow the road right and find parking at the end of the street.
Laguna Beach Very local spot. Good long lefts and racy to inside section. Stays glassy through most of the day. How to Get There Brooks St. is just south of Broadway on Pacific Coast Highway in Laguna Beach. It's about half a mile south of Broadway and requires a walk down some steps.
Salt Creek Highly overrated. Breaks on almost all swells. Fast wave with steep drop. Very crowded. Don't forget to feed the parking meters! How to Get There Salt Creek is the name for San Juan Creek -- Take Pacific Coast Highway to Doheny State Beach in Dana Point and park at the beach.Trestles Multiple breaks at Trestles keep almost anyone happy. Lowers is a crowded spot, which makes catching waves difficult. It could take you all day to get a wave in. Uppers and cottons would not be as tough. Access to the beach is a long walk down a trail. How to Get There Trestles is located off San Onofre State Beach Park there and walk north along the railroad tracks to the trestles, which is basically a series of railroad bridge
