Ten Mile Beach
is the long stretch of coastline dunes at Inglenook Fen Ten Mile Dunes
Preserve. The long stretch of ocean beach is covered by vast dunes structure
that is about 4 miles long and half a mile wide. The sand dunes can reach up to
100 feet tall. This is the most pristine stretch of coastal dunes in California.
The unmarked trail
in the dune and along the ocean front and follow the Ten Mile River opening.
I do not see this location as a must visit for people that do not have the time to explore the coastline at their highway 1 road trip, but if you have 2 hours to spend this is a fun and different place to visit along your drive.
