Rockaway Beach, Pacifica


Welcome back to National Parks with T! If you are seeing this on Twitter or Facebook, please visit the blog to see all of the photos and read the story by clicking the link.


We stopped at Rockaway Beach in Pacifica because we’d heard there was a black sand beach there. When we got there, we saw brownish, ordinary sand. We needed to go a little farther North to Sharp Park Beach for the black sand.


But what we saw at Rockaway was a beach with hardly anyone else on it. We climbed down to the beach, watched a couple of surfers catch a wave and walked out to some cool rock formations with a colony of sea birds on them.


Location: Cabrillo Hwy and Rockaway Beach Ave, Pacifica, CA

    1. We did see some of the Oregon coast in 2016, but were driving down to Redwoods NP, so didn’t spend a lot of time. Someday we’ll get back to see the areas we missed. The water in Northern CA is not warm…just dipping toes in will give you a good foot cramp lol
