              Car: Recommended

              Enjoy walking along the cliffs of West Cliff Drive or surf at world famous Steamer Lane. Standup Paddle Boarder's paradise just outside the surf line and hang out with the otters (or get in the surf yourself).

              Take a 45 minute drive to largest waves on the west coast. One of the most popular surfing spots, Mavericks is known for some of the biggest waves and wildest surfing conditions in Northern California. Every year, Mavericks hosts surfing events that draw hundreds of spectators interested in watching many of the top surfers in the world. Even on a non-event day, watching the surfers tackle the enormous waves can be exciting.
