See massive elephant seals laying all over the beach. Guided tours available.
Thousands of northern elephant seals come to Año Nuevo and a few other beaches in California and Mexico to breed. Watching their reproductive antics is one of the best wildlife experiences available.
The park’s Natural Preserve houses over 10,000 elephant seals a year to breed and give birth. There's a history exhibit, bookstore, and theater, as well as dunes and marshes. North of Pigeon Point.
North of Santa Cruz up highway one. Elephant seals can be viewed year round, and give birth to pups between December and February.

“The lighthouse used to be manned and was successful in saving many mariners lives. It's a beautiful lighthouse, sorely in need of restoration, so visiting can help! One of the ships that wasn't saved by the lighthouse's warnings is rumored to have crashed on shore near Pescadero, while carrying white paint in it's cargo hold. The story told is that the homes in Pescadero have traditionally been painted in white as a result of the shipwreck's spoils floating to shore. The lucky residents were able to paint their homes for years to come with the wreckage paint.”
