A local favorite for swimming and beachcombing

Walk the beautiful Trinidad Head coastal trail to get to this beach. On both sides of the sand, there is water, which makes this beach unique. The trailhead is at the south end of parking lot.

South of the pier and Trinidad Head, you’ll find Indian Beach. A good spot for tidepooling and kayaking. This windy swimming area leads to a boat launch with a pier.

To the north is College Cove, a sheltered spot that makes this a lovely spot to laze in the sun. Known for its rocks and tidepools, this short hike through the woods, leads you across open bluffs, and past wildflowers. Check out the natural arch near the north end of the beach. Come at low tide to try and spot starfish.

There are rest rooms, picnic area, parking area, trails, an open grassy area and spruce forest. The 1/2 mile trail to the beach drops 120 feet, so be sure to walk carefully.
