Access for All: An Interactive Report on Challenges to Coastal Access
Access to the coast is a right guaranteed to all Californians by the 1976 Coastal Act, and violations of that right by private landowners often make the news. But there's more to guaranteeing coastal access than keeping beach paths and stairwells open. Rising costs put beach visits increasingly out of reach for many of us in the Golden State.
As part of a study by UCLA's Institute of the Environment and San Francisco State University, the Greeninfo Network has crafted this interactive guide to Californians and their coast, using data from surveys, social media, and state agencies. Explore and find how your fellow Californians are using our beaches — and learn where you can find a beach to explore near you.
