If you are seeking your own personal retreat, Fort Ord Dunes Beach is the perfect rugged, sandy beach with family outing for one day. A path to the beach is about a four-mile stretch of shoreline and interpretive exhibits. One-third mile long trail is also available from the beach to the Dunes State Park.
On clear days Lover’s Point on the Monterey Peninsula can be seen all the way to Santa Cruz. Trail visitors can enjoy the spot with nests of snowy plovers, native plants provide habitat for various birds, wild creatures and reptiles. Out in the ocean visitors are likely to catch sight of sea otters, harbor seals, and migrating whales. Dunes are now home for many endangered birds and other wildlife. Dogs, Horses and campfires are not allowed on the beach. This a great destination for a day spent sunbathing, roaming and walking along the shore.
