BEST KAYAKING: Tips for Kayaking in Sunset Beach | #HuntingtonHarbor

When the weather is hot, we look to the water to cool off. One of our favorite beaches that we frequent is Sunset Beach. Sunset Beach is all that the movies portray it to be but one thing that many forget about is the Huntington Harbor behind Sunset Beach.

Huntington Harbor is a maze of inlets where boaters, stand up paddle boarders and kayakers can find a great time! There are few large boats that are not docked at their owners houses. Did I mention the houses?! I would LOVE to live in this small piece of paradise!

Back to the reason I am writing... my kids had been begging to go kayaking and finally we found the time. Where to go? I drove by 4 different kayaking places on PCH, which has the best prices and customer service?

I found that Sunset Kayak Rentals had clean, fast service and also the best prices. $25/double kayak for 2 hours. Other shops on PCH wanted that much for 1 hour.

We were off! My daughter with me and my son with my hubby. We loved looking at the gorgeous houses and picked out our favorites to buy when we won the lottery. :-)


Have you been to Seabridge Park/Beach? We paddled right past it and even beached the kayaks and took a swim. There are many little beaches that you can enjoy along the way.


There were a lot of people on the water and many stand up paddle boarders(which is a lot of fun). We even saw some furry friends enjoying the water too.


Did you know you can fish from the kayaks? If you ask you can get kayaks that have rod holders and there is even a "dry" box for items that you don't want too wet.

Our 2 hours were up too fast and it was time to head back to the shop.

We had a great time but I would recommend a few things before you go:
  • Wear bathing suits because you will get wet with the paddles 
  • Bring a picnic to enjoy on the beach 
  • Bring water/snacks 
  • Leave all valuables at home or put in a zip lock bag for the dry box 
  • Leave towels in the car 
  • Be prepared to walk because parking is slim
