Pt. Reyes Drakes Beach Closure Alert

Pt. Reyes National Seashore announcement

Drakes Beach Closure Alert❗️🛑
The elephant seal season is ramping up, which means more seals are arriving onshore and new pups are being born every day. To protect the elephant seal pups from disturbance and to keep the public safe, Drakes Beach will be closed starting at the southern edge of the cove in front of the Kenneth C. Patrick Visitor Center and continuing southwest to the end of Drakes Beach. This closure will be enforced starting Thursday, December 31, and will continue until March 31.
Please respect this seasonal closure and help protect the elephant seals during this sensitive time. You can still access Drakes Beach in front of the visitor center and enjoy a beach walk to the east (left of the visitor center).
