Pass the town of Davenport less than a mile. Take a left on Davenport Landing Road. Pass the Abalone Farm ( and maybe buy some?--see below from Wikipedia) the correct address is 325 Dav. Landing Road. ( please ignore the Davenport Ave address given below.)
you'll see the Beach access and restrooms, a short way on. Spectacular beach/hills covered with flowers, cliffs. Davenport is also home to American Abalone, which is a producer of farm raised California Red Abalone. California farm raised abalone has been selected by the Monterey Bay Aquarium's Sea Watch program as an excellent choice for environmentally conscious seafood consumers.
