Secret Spot California- Crystal Cove

Crystal Cove
When we were in California earlier this year we discovered a rare and beautiful place- Crystal Cove. Just off the PCH (Pacific Coast Highway) sits Crystal Cove State Park offering rolling surf, wide sandy beaches, tidepools, gently sloping hills, and deeply wooded canyons.

I managed to stumble upon the name whilst googling our itinerary,  a happy accident as we could not have been more happy when we discovered what this place has to offer. A perfect example on how going off the beaten path pays off.

Breakfast on the beach is a MUST at Beachcomber Cafe where people often wait upto 90 minutes to get a table.
Tip-book through their website a couple of days before to skip the queue as we did.

Offering generous portions of the most perfect breakfast options,(pancakes with coconut vanilla maple syrup-mmm) you will be spoilt for choice. Not only is the food fantastic but the location could not be any more Idyllic.

Follow breakfast with a stroll along the beach, a surf, visit the local shop, pop in to the information centre, have a picnic or even stay a couple of nights at Crystal Cove Beach Cottages. These cottages book up well in advance so do plan ahead if you fancy this little retreat.
