Underwater Fairyland

Life is in session at the California tide pools when the ocean rolls back and reveals a magical underwater fairyland that beckons all barefoot adventurers into its midst.

The easiest and most accessible pools are located at Leo Carrillo State Beach, north of Malibu.

Fellow On A Dime adventurers, you can park on Pacific Coast Highway (ocean side) for free rather than pay the $12 lot fee. Yep, you are right there, walk about 100 feet and start tide pooling.

The peak season is February and March but make sure to check high/low tide times and enjoy!

No tide pools in your area? No problem. Spring is in the air and upcoming posts will feature flora, fauna, elixirs, and spirited possibilities for a number of locales.
