It is always a nice treat to be away from the stressful hustle and bustle of the city life. Why not plan a quick trip with you and your family? How about with your friends? Or if not, how about planning a weekend getaway with your partner?

Have fun swimming and kite flying alongside the shoreline. There is absolutely something for everyone on this place.

Another suggested place would be at Cape Arago which is home to a number of marine creatures and visiting here is a great opportunity to watch these marine mammals live their lives. Discover attractive inter tidal life by tide pooling which is best done during low tides. While doing this you can also grab a picture of this panoramic view of marine life. It is highly recommended that you bring with you a partner during your explorations just in case you will encounter surprising challenges.

Further, explore in the cape sandy beaches and ragged cliffs, or you can also enjoy watching varieties of seals and sea lions on the offshore rocks. If you plan to visit on winter or early spring then you will get a chance to see great migrating gray whales.
