Bean Hollow State Beach is a beach in the state park system of California, USA. It is located in San Mateo County near Pescadero. The beach offers fishing, picnicking and beachcombing. Visitors can explore tide pools with anemones, crab, sea urchins and other marine inhabitants. The beach also has a self-guided nature trail. Swimming is dangerous because of cold water, rip currents, heavy surf and sharks. Bean Hollow is 17.5 miles (28.2 km) south of Half Moon Bay and 3 miles (4.8 km) south of Pescadero on State Route 1.[1] The 44-acre (18 ha) property was acquired by the state in 1958.[2]
