Deep within Los Padres National Forest, Pfeiffer Beach is a surreal mix of purple sand, giant redwoods, sycamores, and oaks. Offshore, a smattering of sea stacks are scattered like biscuit crumbs across the ocean. A hole through the center of one-known locally as "the door"-provides a frame for the setting sun; as it dips, the rock glows like a set of otherworldly gates in the last rays of daylight.
