Due to the recent heavy wave and swell action beach ruins have been exposed at the end of Taraval Street in San Francisco on the ocean side. In the 1930’s a pedestrian tunnel was built between Taraval street and the Ocean, but it decayed or was heavily eroded which caused the ruins. Eventually the sands covered the ruins. There was pedestrian tunnels back in the 1980’s but they were taken out by the sewer system that now lines the Great Highway.

Shipwreck coast is a lightly used to term to label the area, East of Lands End, and West of the Golden Gate Bridge. You can access via stairs along the coastal trail towards Eagle Point. Eagle Point has a labyrinth. The hike down is easy, the hike back out is not easy.
Once down on the coast, you”ll see relics from Sutro Baths, pieces of wrecked ships, caves and unexplained mineral rock deposits or corral.
It is best to hike it at low tide.
One of the caves excretes a mucus called snottites.
The hike is not for the faint-of-heart.
