A secluded beach situated in the Point Reyes National Seashore, McClures is one of the few accessible destinations for beachcombing in the western side of the Tomales point. The downhill hike which begins from the trailhead at the end of the Pierce Point Road promises a small coastline roofed with different birds as its destination. You should hike along this trail amidst colourful wild flowers with adequate time in your hands to enjoy both the creek that sometimes drifts into the ocean and to beachcomb driftwoods during your visit.
The clear water meeting the sands sometimes reflect beautiful sea lives like jellyfishes making the beach a picture-perfect picnic spot during sunsets. As you explore towards the left side of the beach through beautiful rock formations, there is another isolated shoreline with multiple caves housed at the side. As you climb towards the same trail to the exit, you might find some elks grazing on the hills. Make sure to not disturb them. This side of the shore witnesses some high tides and is not available for swimming but it rewards the visitors with its tiny sand dunes. Hike this easy trail to have a walk of solitude along the clear ocean line.
