The first photo from was posted as ‘Sarasota, Florida,’ but I knew it was a cove in Southern California: the cream-colored rock cliff looks like shale or diatomite, or diatomized shale; and dark basalt points like this are ‘igneous toes’ that are more resistant to erosion, so jut out.
Sand color & beach shape change with seasons, tides & storms. posted as 'Sarasota, FL'
I looked at every natural point in So. Cal. on Google Maps 1st on the satellite, then on photos, & it’s on the West end of our Santa Monica Mountains
