Description:

The surf was astounding when I was there--no idea how large the waves were, but they were spectacular! The beach itself was wide and pretty, large swathes were fenced off to protect bird sanctuaries. It was definitely windy, but there was some amazing coastal fog sitting in a line across the dunes as well. Only downside, managed to step in tar on the beach. We went specifically to see the dunes. It was the location for Cecil B DeMille's 1923 silent version of The Ten Commandments as well as the Valentino epic The Sheik, It is easy to see why, the rolling and windswept dunes could easily stand in for the Sahara. DeMille, in order to keep others from using his monumental sets, destroyed them and buried them under the sand, where they remained for 70 years. Some of it has been excavated and can be viewed at the Guadalupe Dunes Center in town 4 miles away. (Definitely worth a visit). Some of the set occasionally surfaces in the sand and is quickly destroyed by wind and sun. If you're coming from Pismo Beach, there is a lovely drive after leaving the 101, you drive through Eucalyptus groves and farm land
