About Dillon Beach, California

Founded in 1858, Dillon has rapidly become a popular tourist spot thanks to its golden sand and epic, surfer-friendly waves.

There's a public access beach and a private beach resort that you can visit (for a small fee). Both are glorious and great spots to spend your day.

The private beach is the only one in California, so it's worth checking it out to see what makes it so great.

The town itself is quaint and cozy. It has a lovely small-town charm. Amenities include a cafe, general store and surf shop. Simplicity is the name of the game here, so if you're looking for an exciting adventure, we'd say look elsewhere.

Embrace the laid-back lifestyle of Dillon Beach and escape from the pressures of daily life for a few days. You won’t regret it!

What to do

You have to visit the beaches in Dillon. The soft, golden sand is a great place for kids and adults alike to spend the day merrily building sandcastles or catching up on a good book.

The water is a little chilly, so maybe bring a wetsuit. There's hardly any undertow, so it's a great place for less confident swimmers.

Surfers should come here and try to catch some waves. You could learn how to surf from an instructor too, just in case you need a refresher.

When you're not in the water, why not go and explore the tide pools? You're bound to find some exciting critters in there!

If you're thinking about camping for a night or two, head to Lawson's Landing – it's the main camping spot at Dillon Beach and is right on the sand. It's dog-friendly, so your pet can come along too!
