Cherry Beach, which is also sometimes known as Junipero Beach, is the stretch of beach between Junipero Avenue to the west and the Belmont Veteran’s Memorial Pier to the east. Overlooking the beach are two parks. Bluff Park, where visitors can stroll along the park's pathways or relax on one of the benches while enjoying vistas of the beach and harbor is above the southeastern end of the beach, while a section of Bixby Park sits atop the northwestern end. Free yoga classes take place in Bixby Park regularly, and everybody is welcome to roll out their mat and participate. Cross Ocean Blvd and Bixby Park has a playground, fitness equipment, restrooms, and grassy space shaded by trees.
Access to the beach is via stairs spaced every few blocks, or a long switchback path that connects Bixby Park to the beach-level bike and pedestrian paths.
Free street parking is available, or there is a metered parking lot at beach level off Junipero Avenue. Restrooms and rinse showers are located at the eastern end of the Junipero parking lot. Alfredo's Beach Shack offers food and beverages and bike rentals right on the beach just steps from the parking lot as well.
