Hi, I want to take my car onto beach. Could you somebody suggest a beach/location where it is allowed in North California?

thanks

Hmm,

Interesting request. But why would you want to drive on the beach, as opposed to pulling up and walking onto the beach? The majority of the state if not all of it does not allow driving on the beach. Though there are many places you can drive right up to the beach and park.

For dune buggy driving Pismo Beach is an option. You might be able to drive a car onto that beach as well there.

Don't know where OP is from, but in places like Florida it's one of those "you'll take it away from my cold dead hands" kind of rights.

I just got a 4WD SUV and I want to test it on sand and as well have some fun. .. Pismo is far south, but I live in San Jose.. so looking something closeby.

thanks

Yeah, but that always looked disgusting to me whenever I would see pictures of a bunch of cars on the beach in some states. So I still don't get the attraction. I go to the beach to get away from the noise of reving car engines, drunk drivers going hog wild behind the wheel, smog, automotive pollutants, etc... not to revel in it. That's what Pismo is for ... or TX.

Um, Pismo is close if you live in San Jose. The next closest spot is probably out of state. Why not go to a 4x4 trail and test it out there.

Just stay out of the ocean or the salt water will corrode that new SUV of yours. Know someone who did it years ago. Not recommended.

Pismo is the only place in CA. Remember to air down if you get stuck, and, when you leave the beach find a car wash that does underbody wash or you will have corrosion.

Personally, I would take it over the Rubicon Trail. I would have no problem taking your new SUV over the Rubicon.

It runs from east of Placerville to Tahoe,, nice road.
