Spyglass Park and Hidden Beach

Posted by on Tuesday, July 16, 2019 Under: Beaches
You're going to discover a hidden secret if you stumble onto this post. If the tides are not too high, you can walk down from Spyglass Park towards the beach and can curve around the bluffs to the right to find a small tiny beach!

Now all of this is risky and requires good knees. I don't advise you hike down if the wind, weather and tides are not in your favor as well. I've seen a few guys with coolers traveling around those rocky trails down and then disappear around the corner.

The very first time I went to Spyglass Park was to take my kids to the new playground structure that they have just replaced there.

The view is fantastic as I'm watching the kids. It's an amazing backdrop. See my instagram video reel of the Spyglass Park Playground structures. After I brought my husband here for our second visit, I asked him to watch the kids while I try to hike down to get a closer glimpse of the view from down there.
