Scott Creek Beach is operated by the Santa Cruz County Parks (scparks.com) and is located on Highway 1 north of the city of Santa Cruz in Davenport.
The half mile long beach at the bottom of a small bluff is a preferred surfing spot. Swimming isn't advised at the beach because of an undertow.
There are no restroom facilities, no pets allowed, no fires, etc. Just plain beach and ocean. People from Santa Cruz drive north of town to get away for a quiet moment and this has been one of their favorite beaches to do so.
