Imagine sitting here right on the edge of the Pacific Ocean, on your own deck. Well, you can.
Oceanfront real estate in Northern California, Pebble Beach Drive is Crescent City's "Gold Coast" neighborhood, a mile of oceanfront real estate on the edge of a bluff with the most glorious sunsets. Pebble Beach Drive is bordered by a long stretch of beach with the famous Castle Rock showcased offshore. On the south side is Brother Jonathan Point and the Preston Island Coastal Access which goes down the cliffs onto the rocky beach and tidepools below. Ospreys can be seen on their fishing expeditions; Great Blue Herons are regular visitors to the offshore islands. The beach, sparsely used at any time of the year, is perfect for picnics and bonfires, tide pool treasure seeking, and birding. Otters bring their young here, and whales rest just offshore during migration.
