Playa Pavones

The rocky shores of Playa Pavones are littered with nooks and small beaches, each separated by a rocky outcropping or a bend in the shoreline. There is little development along the coast, which preserves the natural beauty of the area -- and all buildings are set inland. Hidden rocks and unpredictable currents make Pavones' waters less than ideal for swimming. Tidal pools, and the creatures that inhabit them, make for interesting beach walks at low tide. Parking can be found along a dirt road that parallels the shore.
