Stone Lagoon Beach is a 1.5-mile-long stretch of sand adjacent to Stone Lagoon, and it is part of the Lagoons State Park. Just a short drive off of Highway 101, two large cliffs and rock walls enclose this beach, making the road the only access other than boat. To the north, Freshwater Rocks create a dramatic and multicolored cliff side. Sharp Point, a large mountain shaped rock, marks the southern end of this beach. Between these two natural barriers is the darkened sand of Stone Lagoon Beach. Dogs are not allowed on this beach due to the residence of endangered species.
The pristine and beautiful Stone Lagoon sits just behind a 1.5-mile sand barrier that holds back the water from the ocean. But every several years or more the waters breach the sand wall and flow into the ocean. This event doesn't happen every year like other nearby lagoons. Over 200 bird species use Stone Lagoon and other nearby lagoons, making this beach an excellent area for bird watching. Bald eagles, herons, egrets, peregrine falcons, and snowy plover all reside within the Lagoons State Parks. In addition, river otters, black bears, and elk can often be seen on the edges of the lagoon and beach.
