LiMPETS site since 1973

Natural Bridges tide pools are on the western edge of Santa Cruz. The best way to reach the site is through the De Anza mobile home community. From the Deleware Avenue entrance, walk down Cascade Drive and follow the path past the pond to the small beach. Once at the beach, head to the right and cross the first two rocky platforms to the site on the third platform. The site is past the area directly under the gazebo. The walk takes about 10 minutes. Please respect the privacy of the De Anza residents and keep noise to a minimum.


Park at the end of Delaware Avenue, by the entrance to the De Anza mobile home community.


There is a porta potty at the end of Delaware Avenue and several buildings have public restrooms at the main entrance to the State Beach.
