Bolsa Chica Ecological Reserve

Coastal nature trail calls bird watchers

Save to my Account

Nature lovers, particularly bird watchers, will delight in this nature preserve on 1,449 acres along Pacific Coast Highway. There’s five miles of coastal trails to wander from sunrise to sunset. Bolsa Chica Wetlands is the largest saltwater marsh between Monterey Bay and the Tijuana River Estuary; more than 300 different bird species have been spotted here. You can expect to see the most birds from November to February, when shorebirds, ducks, loons and other species migrate from northern climates, and from April to August, when terns, avocets, black-necked stilts, and western snowy plovers arrive from down south. When you’re done strolling, head across PCH for a swim at Bolsa Chica State Beach.
