1000 Steps Sea Cave

Saves: 73
Check-ins: 7
Taking the same steps as you would take to the secret pool reveals a mysterious cave on the south end of the staircase. Make sure you go at low tide for complete safety and so that you can walk all the way through to a cove on the other side. On the north side of the staircase a rocky tunnel leads you to a gorgeous beach. Either way, you can't go wrong. To get to Thousand Steps Beach head to 9th Avenue and Coast Highway and park in a legal spot. Across from 9th Ave is the beach access entrance which leads to a long stairway. Keep in mind you'll have to take those 200+ steps back to your car! (Photo by Jen Benson)
