Its Beach is the common name used by locals for the main beach at Lighthouse Field State Beach, which is across from Lighthouse Field and, strangely enough, next to a lighthouse. Its Beach is a California State Beach and dogs must be on leash at all times. The beach is known for its great waves, which break both on the beach and farther out.

2009-09-30 22:12:13   I remember it being called "It" Beach not "Its" Beach. But I have heard "Its" Beach in more recent years. I went to Capitola Elementary School till the second grade. Then, Natural Bridges, Mission Hill, Santa Cruz High '82 and Cabrillo, having lived on 47th, 41st, and lastly Plateau. A Friend of Wiki-LDH —
