As the name suggests, there is a 12-mile-long stretch of pristine sand beach extending east of the cliffs, approximately in the middle of the park. An easy access point is the day-use area at the east end of Twelvemile Beach Campground. It’s a short walk from the parking lot, but be prepared for a long flight of stairs leading from the bluff down to the beach. Pets allowed.
