Moss Landing State Beach

Jetty Road
Watsonville, CA 95076

831-649-2836

Offshore fishing, surfing, windsurfing and horseback riding are popular activities. The beach is a favorite place for picnics because the dunes protect it from afternoon winds. This area is an important stop along the Pacific Flyway so birdwatching is popular. 

Water recreation is dangerous because of strong rip currents.

Vehicles and trailers over 21 feet are not allowed at Moss Landing State Beach due to limited turn around areas.  Parking for large vehicles is very limited.  Visitors with large vehicles and/or trailer are encouraged to visit Salinas River State Beach, which is just 2 miles south on Highway 1.
