Higgins Beach

Higgins Beach

Surfers come to the exposed beach break called Higgins Beach for some of the biggest waves in the state—fifteen-foot swells are not unheard of. There are a few rocks to watch out for, so beginners proceed with caution. In summer, Higgins is closed to surfers between 10 a.m.–5 p.m.
