DescriptionHuntington State Beach is the site of a nesting sanctuary for the California least tern, a rare and endangered species. The beach is also sanctuary for the threatened snowy plover. Beyond acting as a sanctuary, the park features a bicycle trail. Surfing, skating and surf fishing are popular and the beach has fire rings for bonfires.
This popular beach extends two miles from Beach Boulevard in Huntington Beach south to the Santa Ana River on the Newport Beach boundary. Across from the beach is the 114-acre Huntington Beach Wetlands, operated by the Department of Fish and Game.
