DescriptionRehab Point Path is a stellar example of beach access. This paved loop is a spur off a path that follows along the beach south from the park, past apartments and a luxury hotel. The loop travels through dunes to picnic tables on a concrete pad, providing sweeping views of the ocean and, on clear days, the Channel Islands. During my visit in September, warmth radiated from the dunes, and nearby foliage gave off a heady aroma that wafted on the ocean breeze. A short boardwalk extending from the picnic pad brings you closer to the water. Just beyond the tables, a long row of benches invites you to enjoy front-row seats at the ocean theater. Back on the main pathway, continue less than one-eighth mile as it travels behind the resort. As it curves toward the resort, take another spur to a more isolated viewing point higher on the dunes.
