A pebbly, deserted beach is framed by a backdrop of rugged California cliffs. It was named for the first person who settled above the cove, Alden Spooner II. Across from the beach is the old Pecho dairy farm that operated in the 1800s. Nearby is Buchon Cove accessed by Buchon Trail, about 55 minutes walking distance going south. Buchon Cove is marked by a highly unusual set of sea stacks, a natural occurrence that has an eerie resemblance to Stonehenge. Spooner's Cove allows dogs on the beach, but not on the trails. Wear water shoes or sneakers to protect your feet from sharp pebbles and shells. Hours are daily from 6 AM to 10 PM.
