Back in the 1700's Captain Portola led an expedition to Monterrey Bay under the rule of the Spanish King. Unfortunately the captain along with his galleons had gotten lost and when they could not find it they ended up landing on San Gregorio beach. The journey was tedious and long while some men had scurvy others drank some bacterial infected water from the creek here which led to dysentery and eventually death. Many of Portola's men simply did not make it but the expedition continued northbound where they traded with the Ohlone tribe who had a village at Purissima Creek. Before the explorers moved on to discover the San Francisco Bay they had an encampment where the ghost town stands today. San Gregorio Beach is an amazing little place with a sea cave, lagoon and beautiful cliffs everywhere. Not much has changed since Portola and his men stood on these shores! Back in the 1800's this was a large ranch which served the mission in San Fran then in the 1900's their were many cheese factories located here. Since then the beach has become a state park a great way to finish the day after trudging through the rain forest of Purissima. I also met a new furry friend a beautiful Bengal cat playing in the soft pristine sands. Many folks would come down from San Francisco they would break at the Purissima Stage Stop then enjoy a day at San Gregorio.
