This unspoiled, rugged stretch of coastline is alive with birds and wildlife. Dozens of species of birds call it home, as do sea lions, seals, and otters. Ten Mile Beach is a good vantage point to watch the annual whale migration. Bring your binoculars for the best view of the beach’s wild residents.
You’ll enjoy sweeping vistas of the ocean while tide pooling or beachcombing at Ten Mile.
Unlike many local beaches, Ten Mile is sandy, and is notable for its wide, distinctive dunes, which can be more than 100 feet high. Some visitors have been known to sled on the dunes as if they were snow! Walking in the dunes is much easier barefoot than in shoes or boots.
