Of course, we prefer not to be a bearer of bad news or a wet blanket on your beach fun. We always want to celebrate all the great things about the SeaCrest and Pismo Beach vacationing. But today we must cover something critical to a safe and happy summer. This is a matter of YOUR safety. The Cliffs are crumbling. With El Nino rains this year, the erosion is happening faster than ever. The edge of the cliff is unstable! It is absolutely critical you STAY OFF THE CLIFFS.
We have a sign by the vista, but some people seem to think it’s ok to ignore it, step over it and get closer to the edge. For a better view, we ask? Because the view you may end up having is one where you’re looking up at a bank of fluorescent lights in a hospital room – or worse. And we’re not kidding. This year has already seen one death from a cliff fall, a 22 year old man in March, off Pirate’s Cove in Avila. And there have been more. Last year an 18 year old fell to his untimely death. These deaths are preventable. KEEP OFF THE CLIFFS.
There are plenty of beautiful areas we have designated for great viewing and photo ops. Stay safe and use those. Where there are paths appearing worn on the unsafe side of a DO NOT ENTER sign, it’s not safe. Read and follow the posted signage and get the most out of your holiday. If you have questions, please check with the staff before crossing any marked boundaries. Your life depends on your good judgment.
We know by coming to the Central Coast you may be looking for fun and adventure. Great! —Try an Extreme Hummer Adventure in the dunes or zipline over the valleys and vineyards with Margarita Adventures. There is a time and a place to take risks for a good rush and great memories. Trespassing to the edge of the CLIFFS at Pismo Beach isn’t that place. Stay safe – and please, STAY OFF THE CLIFFS.
