Pico Creek Beach Access

Pico Creek Beach Access, just south of San Simeon, is considered one of the best surfing areas along the Central Coast. There is a reef break just in front of the creek mouth, making for a smooth ride. The creek runs most of the year and the lagoon with much wildlife is year-round. There are also trails to the bluff accessible from Highway 1 just north of the bridge.

Turn right onto San Simeon Road/Hearst Castle Road, turn right onto Highway 1, turn right past the bridge onto Pico Avenue. Drive to the end of Pico Avenue and park. Beach access is down the hill (3.2 miles from the Coastal Discovery Center and William Randolph Hearst State Beach).
