Black Sands Beach, located in Shelter Cove CA, marks the southern terminus of the most well-known section of the world famous Lost Coast Trail. From the overlook visitors are treated to what is widely considered to be the most iconic view of the Lost Coast. On clear days an expansive view of eighteen miles of rugged and diverse coastal landscape can be seen stretching north to the horizon. Hammered by winter storms of up to forty-foot waves and two-hundred inches of rainfall, the beaches, creeks, bluffs, forests, and prairies are in constant flux.
