Del Monte Beach
It's not as touristy as other beaches even though it boasts soft sand and dunes although this may change given how prominently it's featured in HBO's "Big Little Lies." This beach is hidden behind a housing development away from the main street. Locals favor this beach for surfing, sunbathing, picnicking, and walking. A boardwalk trail makes getting to the dunes fairly easy. Leashed dogs are allowed too! Parking on the street is free.
