Car: Not Necessary

Our beachhouse is a short walk to Seacliff State Beach, which is a great place to play in the ocean. There are picnic and barb-q areas at the beach and even a snacksnack open in the summer. A small beach and sea life museum is there and a pier to fish from. The pier leads to the old cement ship that you may no longer walk onto, but can see lots of birds and watch for different sea animals. Dolphins are a regular sighting from the pier or beach. A concrete walking path along Seacliff Beach leads to Rio Del Mar Beach which is just past Aptos Creek.

The Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk is not too far with plenty of rides and family entertainment.

Just one exit down the freeway (Rio Del Mar) is Seascape Golf Club at 610 Clubhouse Drive Aptos, CA 95003.
