Greyhound Rock (cont'd)

There’s plenty of room to roam along this long beach in either direction (if you follow the beach north at high tide you’ll wind up at Waddell Creek Beach). The sand is backed by dramatic cliffs and vegetation-covered slopes.

Sea otters, migrating gray and humpback whales and dolphins can all be seen from your chosen perch on the rocks or sand. Tidepooling here is excellent and offers otherworldly views into aquatic life at low tides. Cormorants and black oystercatchers frequent the area, and the usual suspects–pelicans, sandpipers, and seagulls–make their rounds. Wildlife diversity beneath the waves abounds as well, and Greyhound Rock is known for excellent fishing from sand or surf.
