9. Dogs Beach
I call it Dog Beach because it is the only beach where dogs are officially allowed. On many beaches dogs are officially forbidden although people don´t mind. The beach is very stony in the beginning but slowly turns very sandy and beautiful. It turns into Leo Carillo Beach at the end. It is suitable for children and people who like to play with stones. Surfers have discovered this beach, too. Access is possible from the car park (including parking ticket and automat) above; suitable for dog owners.

These 2 beaches are separated by 3 small and beautiful bays in which lay big stones; suitable for photo shootings.
11. Leo Carillo State Beach 1
I have separated these 2 beaches because they are very different. There are many parking possibilities along the Beach Access R.d. There is a camping site in the background. The beach is very stony. You can meet many surfers here.

22. Big Dume Beach
A very long beach which is only accessible from above from Clifford Dr. downhill or from Paradise Cove Beach. In between is Little Dume with its 3 private Riviera beaches. This beach is beautiful but very windy most of the time. This fact makes the beach less attractive because people get the impression to stand in a sandstorm in the middle of a desert. On the other hand this beach is very well suitable for a beach walk with small obstacles in nice weather.
23. Little Dume (Riviera 1,2,3) Beaches
3 private beaches, only accessible on foot from Dume Cove Beach right to the left or from Paradise Cove Beach right to the right because there are only 3 closed private accesses here, which are partly guarded.

24. Paradise Cove Beach
Tourist trap, an overcrowded beach and expensive car parks.
There are restaurants, a bar, lawns and beach chairs. A complete renovation of the whole beach would be necessary. Unfortunately the beach is not anymore what it used to be. Yet the food looks nice and tastes well, even concerning the prices.
