About Pelican Watch

In front of a hotel/motel by the same name, the sandbars here seem to be improving in recent years. Takes all swells and tides but needs some angle in the swell to keep it from closing out. Breaks hard and close to shore. This popular spot picks up smaller swells.

Always crowded because if it’s not breaking here, it’s not breaking anywhere in the area. Good camping in the nearby State Recreation Park.
