Manresa State Beach, Watsonville California
Upon leaving the southern border of Santa Cruz, the view will turn suddenly to the Fertile Crescent, where the rich soil is used to grow a variety of fruits and vegetables. Unfortunately, these privately owned lands means little to no access to the miles of completely perfect beaches. Unless you want to sneak in through the farms, perhaps instead go to the Manresa State Beach
Manresa State Beach features a beautiful expanse of sea and sand, with surf fishing, surfing, and recreation.
Location - Directions
From Highway 1, south of Aptos, San Andreas Road heads southwest and continues for several miles to Manresa, the first beach access upon reaching the coast.
