Every week we pick a newly submitted photo from the Flickr Group "See Monterey- Beautiful Photos of Monterey County." This week's winner is "Garrapata Beach and Creek" submitted by Margret Maria Cordts.
Garrapata State Park is a treasured hiking gem for locals and visitors in the know. This lesser known Big Sur park is also fabulous for ocean fishing and whale watching. The "secret" beach is situated in between the rugged Santa Lucia Mountains and Big Sur's breathtaking coastline and can be easily accessed from Carmel. Keep an eye for the subtle park sign 6.7 miles south of Rio Road in Carmel.
