Recreational Value

More Mesa’s sweeping ocean and mountain views, combined with its unusual habitat and wildlife values provide an unforgettable experience for the visitor. Although public ownership is currently limited to the northwest 54 acres of the area, over ten miles of existing trails have a long history of informal heavy public use for horseback riding, hiking and biking.

More Mesa fronts one of the largest, and probably most pristine, beaches along the entire 30 miles of the south coast urban area. Clear clean water and a sandy bottom make this beach ideal for swimming. Moreover, its relative isolation also encourages use by a variety of Marine wildlife. Taken as a whole, all these features provide a unique beach experience.
