The 26th Avenue beach access is one of many entrances tucked away in the coastline residential area of Pleasure Point in Santa Cruz, California. Located just a few blocks away from Pleasure Point, this is a popular spot for locals to hit the waves that make this area so popular.

If you're lucky enough, you can get one of the two parking spaces located at the dead end. Otherwise you will need to find parking off the street, which can be difficult in this area. There are stairs leading down to a beach that may or may not be accessible depending on the tide. When the tide is down, you will have a nice stretch of sand that hugs the cliff side. Leashed dogs are allowed here.
