Point Lobos State Natural Reserve has often been called "the crown jewel" of California's 280 state parks. It continues to be a mecca for people interested in seeing beautiful vistas and magnificent animals, in nourishing their need for the kind of serenity that nature provides, and in pursuing their love of photography, painting, nature study, and poetry. In addition to the spectacular beauty, nearly every aspect of its resources is of scientific interest. There are rare plant communities, unique geological formations, and incredibly rich flora and fauna of both land and sea.
For the safety of all visitors face coverings are required when visiting the Reserve.
