Between Monterey Bay and Ventura County's Santa Monica Mountains lie some of California's most spectacular coastal destinations. This easy-to-use, up-to-date, comprehensive guidebook is the essential companion for all visitors - sightseers, hikers, swimmers, surfers, campers, birders, boaters, and anglers--who want to explore California's fabulous shoreline. The California Coastal Commission was created by the voters of California, who adopted an initiative measure in 1972 that formed the Commission and gave it broad powers to plan and protect the coast. Later, the California Coastal Act of 1976 established the Commission as a permanent state agency with a mission to protect, maintain, and enhance the quality of the coastal environment. One of the Commission's principal goals is to maintain public access and public recreational opportunities along the coast, in a manner consistent with environmental preservation. The guide includes: descriptions of more than 310 beaches, parks, campgrounds, nature preserves, natural history museums, and outdoor recreation sites on or near the coast; the Monterey Bay Aquarium, Point Lobos, Big Sur, Hearst Castle, Morro Rock, Santa Barbara, Channel Islands National Park, the spacious white sandy beaches of Ventura County, and more; 40 color topographic maps showing shoreline access and trails, 4 regional maps, and 2 foldout maps of California and its ocean; easy-to-use charts that list key facilities and features, including wildlife viewing, food and drink, access for wheelchair users, and parking; and, illustrated articles describing natural history, geology, local history, and more.
