Bodyboarding in Bean Hollow State Beach, Pescadero, California USA

Offshore winds:
East
Optimum swell direction:
Southwest
Bean Hollow State Beach is a state park located in San Mateo County near Pescadero, California, USA.

Bean Hollow is in most places a rocky beach, 17.5 mi/28.1 km south of Half Moon Bay and 3 mi/4.8 km south of Pescadero. Although the beach is beautiful, swimming can be dangerous, because of the sharks, cold water, heavy surf and rip currents.

The trail is about 2 mi/3.2 km long, surrounded by beautiful wild flowers and ideal for fishing, birding, picnicking, scenic driving, beach-combing, hiking and walking. When the swell is right, it becomes a great body-boarding spot.

Summer offers the best conditions for body-boarding. The offshore winds come from the east. The optimum swell direction comes from the southwest. The reef break from the left is better than from the right. There are no facilities, but nearby in Pescadero, beautiful hotels are located.

If you want to have fun, there are many things to do and places to visit. You should definitely try the local cuisine, which is found in lovely restaurants and bars & grill.
