The California Coastal National Monument comprises more than 20,000 rocks, islands, exposed reefs, and pinnacles along the 1,100 miles of California’s coast.  The scenic beauty and important wildlife habitat within the Monument are protected by the Bureau of Land Management as National Conservation Lands.

Millions of people view the California Coastal National Monument from roads, beaches, bluffs, watercraft, or through one of the Monument Gateway Communities.
