There are seven coves along this three mile stretch of coast – all with their own history. Crystal Cove, for example, was the backdrop for two movie versions of Treasure Island filmed in 1918 and 1934. The movie Beaches with Bette Midler was also filmed here. It is now the home of about a dozen recently restored cottages that were originally built between 1920 and 1970. So much to see when you explore California’s Gold Coast on one of our classic excursions!
