Little Rincon/Mussel Shoals Spot Guide

About Little Rincon/Mussel Shoals

Rocky semi-point fronting this small beach community, just south of the oil pier leading out to “Rincon Island.” Good spot during large winter swells with lower tide. Gets hollow and very fast; speedy sections abound. Less crowded than Rincon but definitely not as good, although it does have its days. Plainly visible from the highway.

Watch out for rock hazards, especially at low tide. Access is through Mussel Shoals, at the north end of Breakers Way and at the west end of Ocean Avenue. Limited parking on either street.
