Donkey Beach

We rode our bikes down the multi-use path along the ocean, stopping to view the scenery along the way until we abruptly came to the end. According to the guidebook the bike route was supposed to be 9 miles long yet we hit the end after only about 3 miles just beyond this secluded and rather empty beach. Only much later did I find out this was the "famous" former nude beach called "Donkey Beach". We didn't have time to wander down to it but stopped long enough above the beach to enjoy this view. Apparently, the relatively new owners of the land behind the beach have hired security guards to keep nudists off this beach. The bike route is supposed to be connected and extended in the coming years. It would be great to take a 10 or 20 mile bike ride on well maintained bike paths with views like this and access to the many beaches and picnic areas along the way.
