Asilomar State Beach

Please note: leashed dogs are allowed at Asilomar State Beach. Please consider families with infants and young children who frequent the beach when walking dogs by keeping them under control and picking up after your pet.

Asilomar State Beach is a narrow, mile-long strip of sandy beach and rocky coves bordered by a pedestrian/bike trail. Vehicle parking and a bicycle lane is adjacent to the state beach on Sunset Drive.

There are no restrooms or picnicking facilities on the state beach.

Across from Asilomar State Beach is the Asilomar Natural Dune Preserve. A boardwalk meanders through the 25 acres of restored sand dune ecosystem, leading to Asilomar Conference Grounds, a historic complex managed by California State Parks.
