Huntington State Beach Rating
Beach Personality: Friendly Beach, Great For Large Groups
Huntington State Beach
Huntington State Beach is particularly wide and very long, especially if you take into account the fact that it is an extension of Huntington City Beach to the north. The beach’s sand is beige in color and soft and grainy in consistency. The ability to build beach bonfires in the concrete fire rings is a major draw here.
Martha and Martin, a couple of Huntington State Beach regulars, say the beach is “one of the cleanest beaches around.” They also like it because all the regulars know each other and treat each other like family.
In addition to all of Huntington State Beach’s outstanding facilities and friendly patrons, it houses a protected bird sanctuary for the least tern and the snowy plover.
