Map & Directions

A local favorite, Leffingwell Landing is part of Hearst San Simeon State Park and offers the perfect peaceful spot to enjoy a light lunch, read a book or have a picnic with friends and family.

The park has a day-use area just north of Moonstone Beach in Cambria with a picnic area that includes tables, barbecue stands, water spigots and restrooms and the scenery is breathtaking.

With stunning views and easy parking, it’s no wonder this local favorite si also a favorite among travelers. A small beach runs next to it, where the sand isn’t your average white sand at all. Instead it’s a gathering of tiny dark pebbles, known as moonstone.

And because its sheltered from the highway and busy city life, Leffingwell Landing is also a great place to have a casual, intimate outdoor wedding.

Looking for a quick, moderate hike? Leffingwell Landing is just north of a trail and near plenty of lodging and restaurants.

Highway Closures

Highway 1 Closure

If you're heading to the Central Coast, be sure to be mindful of the stretch of Highway 1, 21 miles north of Cambria. Caltrans is busy with a major construction project to make traveling along the stunning Pacific Coast Highway a safer journey.

Highway 1 Storm Repair Along the Big Sur Coast Due to multiple active slides, State Route 1 is now closed between Ragged Pt. (SLO 72.87) and just south of Nepenthe (Mon 44).

Worried about Highway 1 Road Closures? Cambria and Hearst Castle are easily accessible from Highway 46 West from 101 South of Paso Robles or from northbound Highway 1 from the city of San Luis Obispo. Travelers from the north can easily take Highway 101 as an alternate route to Highway 1, which reduces travel time to Cambria by about 25 minutes.
