- State Parks,
Crystal Cove State Park has 3.5 miles of beach and 2,000 acres of undeveloped woodland and the offshore waters are designated as an underwater park. Crystal Cove is used by mountain bikers, hikers and horseback riders inland and scuba and skin divers underwater. The beach is popular with swimmers and surfers. Visitors interested in just a walk can explore tidepools and sandy coves. Indeed Crystal Cove offers sand and surf, rocky reefs, ridges and canyons - something to appeal to everybody.
The great expanse upland, north and east of the Pacific Coast Highway is particularly good for hikers and campers, who can follow hillside and canyon trails to campsites that allow visitors to feel they are "away from it all," despite being near one of the greatest population centers in the United States.
