Beach Information
Special Comments: Big Dume is one of the most beautiful beaches in the area with remarkable views, great surf, diving, and even rock climbing. Tall cliffs covered with blooming flowers and cacti overlook the sparkling blue ocean. The reefs in the water are excellent for skin or scuba diving. Big Dume is the most beautiful of all the beaches in the area. At low tide, you can search through the tidepools. Shorefishing is also good off of the rocks to the north. You can hike all around the point, finding secluded areas with warm strips of sand. On big swells, the surf is a perfect right that bowls over shallow reef. Some days the locals will enforce localism, but other days they have no control due to so many surfers hiking in. Big Dume has always been a clothing-optional beach, but the clothed outnumber the nude. Facilities include bus stop, diving, fishing, restrooms, surfing and tide pool.

Food/dining:You must pack your own food and drink in and out of the beach.
Restrooms: Available in the Westward Beach parking lot
