Location: Santa Cruz County, CA
Features: Scott’s Creek is located right off the highway just a little bit beyond Davenport Landing. You should take a car to get there, but it’s not hard to find. It’s a great surf spot for surfers of all experience levels, and the waves are pretty consistent. Unlike other beaches in Santa Cruz, it is not very crowded during the week or on the weekend. This has been called one of Santa Cruz’s most wonderful beaches, and it’s very family-friendly and great for surfers of all experience levels.
Beach: This is a pretty average spot on most days, and the waves don’t ever get that great. The only wave worth nothing Is the one at the north end, which hardly ever lines up, but it can be just as good as several of the other surrounding reefs on the right day. Some of the waves can get very powerful in that area. There is some free parking on either side of Highway 1. It can be a little dangerous to cross the two-lane highway, so you should look both ways before you cross. There are always a lot of kite surfers and surfers here. It can get kind of chilly, so be sure to bundle up.
