Dogs running wild, partly dirty appears to be used too much for grilling/partying. Not worth the extra visit in my opinion as you will also take into account quite a drive.

Parking lot seems to always be full, take the time to find a spot. People come and go regularly. Gorgeous beach, friendly people. Restrooms in parking lot. Two little girls loved it!

My husband and I went to see the Muir park, but we didn't know about the parking reservation, so it was full when we got there. So we decided to check out the beach. It was phenomenal. We saw lots of star fish, colorful crabs,...More

Nice beach that is dog friendly. Easy to get to and if you get there early you can park close in. Try the pub at the turn off for a nice English pub lunch too.

Take time to make a stop at Muir Beach. Quick walk along a boardwalk from parking lot-through nature preserve to beach. Several hiking trails if you prefer to wander. Relaxing pit stop. Bathrooms.

Too crowded! Not enough beach for lots of dogs and children to play. Drove a couple of hours to see the beach, prefer further up HWY 1, past Jenner. Okay for families that live in that general area or close vicinity.

Beach has free parking, only open until 9:00 pm. You walk a half mile or so to the beach from the parking lot (limited space), and path is wheelchair accessible all the way to the sand. The beach is crescent shaped, has several fire rings,...More

For the beach you just go. For the National Park/redwoods you must reserve parking ahead of time. It’s only $8.00.
