Gaviota State Park -



Gaviota State Park is a popular spot for swimming, picnicking and surf fishing. The area was called "gaviota" (seagull) by soldiers from the Portola Expedition in 1769. Divers and surfers use a pier on the west end of the beach. A Southern Pacific railroad trestle crosses the creek above the day-use parking lot. Visitors can explore the upland portions of the park from a trailhead in the parking area.
