In the past, this beach has also been known as Grey Whale Cove or Edun (nude spelled backwards) Cove, but these day's it's usually called Devil's Slide, for the landslides that frequently close the highway nearby.
The beach was run by a concessionaire until spring, 2001, but today it's run by the California state parks system.

Laws regarding nudity at the naturist beach vary by location and fines are stiff in some places. I have made every effort to provide accurate information, but the responsibility for knowing the law at Grey Whale Cove is yours.
