Zmudowski Beach State Park


Rating: C

Only a few diehard nudies occasionally visit the dunes of the locale formerly known as Hidden Beach, where families now roam the sand and homes dot the surrounding area. Zmudowski is in the north end of the county, just south of the Pajaro River.

State beach property.

How to find it:

Follow Struve Road from Highway 1, just north of Moss Landing, to its intersection with Giberson Road. Then take Giberson to its end, at the state beach parking lot. Hike to the north tip of the beach via the dirt access road that starts at the small lot. The beach path runs parallel to the shore, but nude sunbathers usually gather behind the sand dunes.

The beach:

No longer "hidden" (see above), the site is now ringed by houses and condos.

The crowd:

Mostly a family beach.


Rangers (keep your swimsuit on when rangers or clothed beachgoers are in the area); cold water; wind; fog; riptides.
