About four miles north, the little town of Anchor Bay perches atop a dramatic ocean cliff, affording a panoramic view of the Pacific (and a great vantage from which to watch sea lions and migrating whales).
The small bay itself (popular with rum runners during Prohibition) is supremely picturesque, edged with a scimitar of white sand that is Fish Rock Beach and featuring a sea stack, Quinliven Rock, rising 40 feet above the water just offshore.
