This place has probably seen more people then any other site in Mendo county. Mainly because this beach is where all the locals hang out and watch their children. As for the blow hole, there are lots of broken and whole ab shells (found some really nice baby ab shells) and what appears to be old car/wagon parts. I asked a local and was told that back in the day people would use the hole as a dump. So overall if you're into finding shells and seeing a local sea fill, this is a great place. Otherwise better off at Russian Gulch or Van Dam.
