Point Lobos State Natural Reserve "contains headlands, coves and rolling meadows," according to the California State Parks' Point Lobos State Nature Reserve's Website.
"The offshore area forms one of the richest underwater habitats in the world popular with divers," it says. "Wildlife includes seals, sea lions, sea otters and migrating gray whales (from December to May).
"Thousands of seabirds also make the reserve their home. Hiking trails follow the shoreline and lead to hidden coves.
"The area used to be the home of a turn-of -the-century whaling and abalone industry. A small cabin built by Chinese fishermen from that era still remains at Whalers Cove and is now a cultural history museum."
