Where you'll be

One of the most common locations we tend to take our guests to is San Onofre State Beach. This is a classic California surf destination, that brings surfers and beach goers back in time, to a golden era of California surf lifestyle. We drive right down to the sand and waters edge on a dirt road, and park just behind the bamboo palapa at Old Mans.
