From the Pelican Point entrance, Treasure Cove Beach at Crystal Cove State Park is accessed from hiking trails leading down the steep bluff from day-use parking lots. This state park entrance is across the Pacific Coast Highway from Newport Coast Drive. Treasure Cove Beach is popular with surfers as well as scuba divers exploring the Crystal Cove Underwater Park reefs. The Bluff Top Trail allows walkers and bikers to see Little Treasure Cove at the park's northern boundary on a route south to the Crystal Cove Historic District and north. There is a tall rock wall between Treasure Cove and Little Treasure Cove with an observation platform on top. An interpretive sign along the trail describes gray whales and their December and April migration season when they can be spotted from this site. There is a cave in the wall facing Treasure Cove which can be reached at lower tides. In this area, too, there are many tide pools to enjoy at low tide. Cottages are available for rent in the Historic District of the State Park and Moro Beach Campground can be used for camping. Inquire about lodging and park activities at El Moro Visitor Center.
