Pebble Beach is a part of Bean Hollow State Beach, with its own parking area about a mile north. A pocket beach is north of the parking area, and a trail along the bluff leads south to the Bean Hollow parking area.
Straight ahead off the parking lot are outcrops of Pigeon Point Formation sandstone. The surface of many of the rocks has been weathered in a honeycomb-like surface texture known as tafoni. This area leads to extensive tide pools.
