Such a beautiful beach that's somehow both tranquil, yet lively. You could easily zone out here even though there are tons of people around. Beautiful horizon and an awesome place to catch the sunrise and sunset. I love that I can also see the boardwalk across the water.

Pretty beach that's much more chill than the Boardwalk and Wharf. Good to walk it -- explore the natural bridge and the lighthouse.

Great place to watch rogue fireworks on 4th of July, just watch where they light them so you don't get burned.

We stumbled upon this beach by our navigation system!. After being told by a patrol man we would be sited for having a dog on the BOARDWALK (Santa Cruz) our family was a lil' bummed that we had to leave the premises...so we pulled out the good ole navigation to find PUBLIC beaches that allowed dogs & came across SEABRIGHT!!! Just right up the ways from the BOARDWALK! Beautiful, clean, not over crowded & a really fun place for family (including dogs!)

Went for the day to celebrate a friend's upcoming wedding. Sort of a bridal shower on the beach. Beach was clean, not over crowded and very peaceful.
