He was related by blood and marriage to a long line of distinguished original Californians. The park has 1.5 miles of beach for swimming, surfing, wind-surfing, fishing and beachcombing. The beach also has tidepools, coastal caves and reefs for exploring. Nature walks and campfire programs are offered (call the park for schedules) and a small visitor center has interpretive displays.
