McWay Falls Beach

This unique falls along Highway 1 at Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park is one of only two waterfalls in California that cascades directly onto the beach, the second being Alamere Falls. Before 1983 McWay Falls decended directly into the ocean, however with the debris from landslides that occurred that winter the cove where the falls fell has expanded. Truly worth the visit.
