A stop at Sand Beach is a must. Nestled at the foot of the Beehive Mountain, Sand Beach offers a chance for brave souls to dip their toes in the chilly ocean. The sand is mostly crushed seashells and sea urchin skeletons and the water rarely rises above 55 degrees. Other activities include sunbathing, beach-combing, kite-flying or hiking. The moderate 1.5-mile Great Head Loop Trail traverses evergreen forest along the sea cliffs or stroll all or just a portion of the 3-mile Ocean Trail which travels from Sand Beach to Otter Cliff.
