Salinas River State Beach
Visitors to this beach come for nature watching, beach combing, fishing, photography, and taking a walk, rather than swimming or surfing. It contains the remnants of a half sunken barge. Water conditions are often adverse; the temperature is too low, the waves are too strong, and the surf is unpredictable. In addition, there are no lifeguards present.
Among the species found on the beach and its dunes are California brown pelican, red-tailed hawk, American kestrel, western snowy plover, western gull, black phoebe, California scrub jay, California towhee, and white-crowned sparrow.
