Designated Accessible Parking
Usable Restroom Facility
Usable Picnic Area
Parking is limited at China Beach. Visitors are not allowed to drive past the entry gates; doing so would encroach on the space needed to launch the National Park Service rescue boats.
Inside the Park
Beyond the parking lot there is a paved road leading down to the beach. Due to the existing terrain, this paved road is extremely steep. Please proceed with caution. There is a usable restroom facility and a usable picnic area. There is a steep paved ramp that leads to the beach. This is only used for emergency rescues and is not available for public boat access.
