From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Moss Landing State Beach is a beach located in Monterey County, California. 16 miles (30 km) north of the city of Monterey via Highway 1. Among the most popular activities are offshore fishing, surfing, windsurfing and horseback riding. However, the strong rip currents make the water recreation (swimming, wading, etc.) dangerous. Moss Landing State Beach is also popular for picnicking due to the fact that the dunes block out the afternoon winds from blowing into the picnic area. [1]


Moss Landing State Beach has several bird-watching spots, but the type and number of birds can vary by season. Moss Landing Wildlife Area, has ponds that are controlled by tidal gates. They are a major roost for brown pelicans and also beneficial for shorebirds. Sea ducks, loons, grebes and gulls can also be easily spotted. Occasionally, there are special visitors such as Long-tailed Duck and Red-necked Grebe. [2]
