    This is the beach I remember as a child and young teenager! We loved this beach and came every year for many years! The pictures of it bring back some great memories!

  2. Joni Bernhardt says:

    I am a 60 year old woman. When I was between the ages of 5-10, my parents took me to Refugio, weekend after weekend. It is still my favorite beach in California. It is so pristine!

  3. I’m 55, going on 56. When I was 7 years old, my family moved to Refugio Beach. We lived there, 4 years. I played n the garage, and on the beach. My brother and I stopped there, just a year ago, June. It’s appeared to be more popular, than years prior. Wish, I could see inside the house.
