Spectacular McClures Beach is located towards the northern end of Point Reyes National Seashore. The broad sandy beach is enclosed by bluffs and rocks in a rugged setting with typically rough surf coming off the Pacific Ocean. The rock at the southern end of the beach, known as Elephant Rock, can be climbed for a commanding view south all the way down the Great Beach and north to Tomales Point. There are several blow holes and intricate features in this rock that are worth exploring. Around the southern corner beyond Elephant Rock is a small sandy cove with picturesque rock formations. On the day I visited the surf was very high so tidepooling was not feasible, but I imagine these rocks are nice locations to view sea creatures during low tide on a calm day.
