San Onofre State Beach is part of a larger 3,000 acre coastal canyon park. It is bordered to the north by the town of San Clemente, and to the south and east by the sprawling Camp Pendleton Marine Corps Reserve. San Onofre Surf Beach offers a world renowned and historical surf break. The beach is strictly available for day-use with no camping. San Onofre offers an opportunity to appreciate what Southern California's entire coastline may have looked like 100 years ago. Here you will find barren, windswept bluffs, native vegetation and a tidal wetland frequented by migratory birds and wild deer. The park includes three distinct areas: San Onofre Surf Beach (day use area), San Onofre Bluffs Campground, and San Mateo Campground.
