The northern and central coasts of California boast of miles of isolated beaches and rocky headlands with tide pools below ancient forests largely untouched by development. The Southern California Coast cannot provide these same images. While it has been touched by development in many places, photographers with a little patience and a sense of humor can discover landscapes (and seascapes) unlike the rest of California. Warm summer weather brings millions of visitors to south coast beaches that can be empty in midwinter when temperatures can drop to the low 60s.
Visit southern California during the winter and you can find famous surfing beaches, wildlife refuges, state parks, county parks, city parks, and lighthouses without the crowds. Enjoy a winter exploration of many small shoreline parks and scenic overlooks above white sand beaches where a few hardy surfers can be found, even on the coldest days in January.
