Be careful and don't let your first visit be when it's dark. The beach is legendary for a reason My recent visit to the beach was just as I remembered. Steep trail to access but once there, the
I hate to disappoint you but I have to respect all the nakedness on this beach. It was when I was browsing through my shots that I found out that most of what I captured are commonly those languid, spontaneous, subtle moments. Coming down the high cliff was easy as there are made-up stairs and paths provided. Caution still has to be practiced because the descend is prone to tripping hazards for its slippery sandy ground, and landslides can occur at any time. The ascend is however a torture. There are a lot of hesitations from people coming down, and a lot of catching breath from people that are going up. I hit the shore and ahoy!
Blacks Beach sits along a beautiful part of the rocky La Jolla coastline. Here are a few things you may not know about this tucked-away spot! A dirt road for horse and buggies followed the cliffs to what is known now as Torrey Pine State Park. It was subdivided into a group of larger lots, and to this day the area is still known by the same name: La Jolla Farms.
The access route down from the large glider port parking area is quite steep and slippery in places. There is another access further south at the intersection of Blackgold and La Jolla Farms Roads where a long paved path leads down to an area known as South Blacks Beach. The north boundary is Mussel Rocks where large rocks extend into the water and the south boundary is about yards south of the main access trail. See details. Locals, students and UCSC staff […].
