Great beach all around. I have been camping there for 26 years every summer for a week. I have seen the vis at 1ft all the way to 50+ over the years. There are some nice dive spots north and south of Refugio. If you have the availability of a small boat, great beach launch spot there and are never any big waves. I take a hard bottom inflatable with a 25 hp. Head north most of the time. There are two large kelp beds with about 75 yards between the two. Also you can pull off the freeway and walk down to beach. There's a big tree on the beach for shade. Use Google earth and see for yourself.
