Located right in front of the Montage Resort, Treasure Island Beach is a popular destination that is listed by Coastal Living as one of the Top 20 Beaches in California. The spot is protected by large bluffs on both sides, making the water relatively calm; the beach is also maintained by resort workers, ensuring its pristine beauty year-round. There are public restrooms and showers as well as lifeguards that are stationed during the day. To get to Treasure Island, find metered parking off of Wesley Drive and Ocean Drive, and take a short walk down the stairs.
Due to the gentle waters and, this is the perfect location for swimmers to cool off from the Southern California heat.
