Access may be limited due to beach conditions and possibly limited to 4 wheel drive vehicles. Follow SJC beaches on Twitter and Facebook for daily driving updates. I personally would not recommend taking anything other than a 4 wheel drive vehicle on the beach. You really don’t want to end a nice day at the beach with a tow truck bill!

If driving on the beach makes it easier for you, here are the points of entry to the SJC beaches that allow vehicular traffic.

  • Vilano
  • Porpoise Point
  • A Street
  • Ocean Trace
  • Dondanville Rd.
  • Matanzas Ave.

Here’s a post we did awhile back about driving on the beaches you may find helpful on your quest to find the perfect spot!
