Marina State Beach

Marina State Beach is a protected beach of California, United States, located in the city of Marina. It is popular with hang-gliders, paragliders, and kite flyers. It is also a popular spot from which to watch the sun set.[1] Surfers frequent Marina State Beach due to its reliable waves. The 170-acre (69 ha) park was established in 1977.[2]

The dunes are some of the highest on the Central California coast, and provide homes to unique wildlife. A short interpretive trail (0.6 miles) provides visitors with information about the habitat and inhabitants of the dunes.[1]
