There is a path that runs across the beach through Huntington City Beach. Bolsa Chica is popular for its manageable surf possibilities, so it is the perfect location to surf.

The sea tends to offer really good waves conditions and the swells are northwest/west in winter and south/southwest in summer. Range of the waves varies from 3 to 10 ft/1 to 3.5 m high, depending on storm activity during summer (from Central America or Mexico) or winter (from Alaska).
