Easiest way to get there without breaking the law...

Get onto Westward road from PCH. Take a left turn on the street right next to the Sunset Restraunt. Go up the hill until you see a little parking lot on the side of the road, you'll see a sign saying Point Dume State Park. Walk down the dirt trail to the stairs. You get on the beach and walk over to the point you see to the south of Point Dume. Its a long walk, maybe about 20 min. Do the rock dance around the point and paddle in. Be very respectful to the locals.

 Additional Information

Difficult access. Car towing common in neighborhood. Great wave but hard to get to. You can surf it alone or with a vibey local crew that don't want you there. Remember, its a private beach, you need a key to get in, or a long walk from Paradise cove or from Big Dume(which are both about 25 min walks, and you might get the stink eye from a few locals). High tide only because of a few big boulders in the way. Have fun and be repectful.

MLO isn't real - REAL locals don't fight on arrival. There is nothing wrong with walking into Little Dume. Nothing at all. Respect people when you arrive; that means: (1) surf a spot that is suitable for your level; (2) if it is too crowded, WAIT until people get out; (3) give up a wave or two even if you are in position. MLO, you need to get REAL.

MLO - If you are seen walking to LD be ready to get a beat down by the locals at the outter reef. At BD if the locals have never seen you here be ready to be snaked and hit the clif so surf where you live

sharky - the shark factor can be sketchy i suppose. too people were killed by whitey a few years back while kayaking around the canyon
