If you’re looking to sleep to the sound of surf and swaying palm trees on a pristine stretch of the Central California coastline, Refugio State Beach is not to be missed.

With lifeguards patrolling the beach throughout the year, lifeguard towers staffed during the summer months, and beach wheelchairs available free of cost, Refugio State Beach is a great place for a family outing. To experience the beauty of the coastline, set off from your beach campsite for an adventure on a beautiful set of trails to visit Refugio’s stunning neighbor, El Capitán State Beach. Or, for a close-up look at the coast from a different angle, sign up for a kayak tour led by one of the park’s lifeguards.
