Natural Bridges State Beach is off West Cliff Dr. It offers many tide pools for exploring. From about mid-October through February it's possible to observe monarch butterflies, which pass through on their annual migration; a boardwalk leads to the grove of trees where they can be spotted. A visitor center offers exhibits about area ecology and wildlife.
