Crescent is a beach break suitable for beginners and intermediates. Needs a powerful west to northwest swell to work. Best at mid to high tide, but at dead high tide it can get flat for about 45 minutes. S-SW offshores produce the best conditions. It can get closed out at 6' surf size and above, unless there are strong SW or SE offshores...kayakers welcome. Salt Creek state park is adjacent to the east end of the bay. Crescent is a private beach and with a reasonable day fee, you get parking and a hot shower.
