El Pescador State Beach, which means "the fisherman" in Spanish, is a favorite location for surf-fishing and bodyboarding. The beach is long and crowds are minimal. On busy weekends the parking lot may be full, but there is still plenty of space on the beach.
The good waves at El Pescador make it a favorite beach for surfers and bodyboarders who like to stay away from the crowds. Diving in the outer kelp beds can be good to excellent with an abundance of sea life.
