An aerial view of Naples, on the Gaviota Coast.

The members of the Naples Coalition invite the public for a fun and educational beach walk on Saturday, February 2, along the beach from the public access at the Bacara Resort to the bluffs on the Naples property. The Naples Coalition, which seeks to maintain and protect the rural character of the Naples property on the Gaviota Coast, will host the hike and describe the sensitive and threatened nature of the Naples ecology. The hike will start at the Public Access parking lot at Haskell’s Beach adjoining the Bacara Resort at 12:30 p.m. sharp. The walk is about two miles one-way and crosses a rocky point that will be mostly dry on this day due to a minus-low tide. Allow three hours to leisurely complete the walk. Bring a pair of old beach shoes (for the rocky point crossing and the occasional beach tar), a sunhat, and any water or snacks. No dogs are allowed. For more information, visit
