Gray Whale Cove State Beach

Gray Whale Cove State Beach

From December to January and March to May, majestic gray whales can be seen migrating from the shores of this beach. On the north end of the beach is an infamous clothing-optional area called Edun Beach (which is n-u-d-e spelled backwards). In case you were wondering, the country's oldest nude beach is in San Gregorio, which dates back to 1967.
