Scenic View/Photo Spot

Scorpion Anchorage is a small harbor with a pier on the northeast side of Santa Cruz Island. The mixed sand and cobblestone Scorpion Beach is a world-class destination because of easy beach access, clear ocean waters, a spectacular shoreline with sea caves to explore, nearby camping, numerous trails, and year-round Island Packers boat transportation. 

Place Name
It is unclear how Scorpion was named; it may be the shape of the valley or the fact that there are small scorpions present.
