Ano Nuevo State Park, Pescadero, California

This fantastic State Park is a nature preserve in San Mateo County, not far from Palo Alto (about one hour and half).

It’s a wild area where animals live in complete freedom in a protected habitat. The largest mainland breeding colony in the world for the northern elephant seals live here. From December to March a guided tour let you see males battles for mates and females going to the dunes to wait for their babies’ birth.

You will walk for about two hours in the dunes and then you will arrive at the beach full of elephant seals and sea lions.

It could be very windy and cold.

It’s a wonderful experience also for kids, the guide is usually a voluntary who explains the park’s history with great passion and answer all children’s’ questions.

It’s always better to book the visit before to avoid to arrive there and not find any places available. You usually need to book well in advance your trip, the park is a big attraction in the area and many visitors go there especially during winter.
