Moonstone

Just to the north of Little River where it enters Trinidad Bay is Moonstone Beach. A popular beach with surfers, depending on the wave sets, Moonstone is also popular with dog owners. Visitors access the beach off of Scenic Drive about three miles south of Trinidad. Just before Scenic Drives veers left to join Highway 101, Moonstone Beach Road comes in on the right. There is a modest mostly gravel parking lot that may accommodate up to twenty vehicles, and one lone port-a-potty by the entrance to the beach itself. Much cozier than the expansive stretches of Clam Beach, Moonstone is a good place for your puppy to meet other puppies along the surf line. Rock-climbing groups sometimes gather for practice here. Seek one out to learn how to tackle these rocks safely.
