Domes Beach was another favorite of ours to shoot and surf. It is right next to the old nuclear power plant that was open for 8 days back in the 60’s. The power plant’s nuclear cores were cemented over many decades ago; so don’t worry about glowing after surfing here. This beach is nice because it is just a little more remote than Marias Beach and it has a lot of shaded real estate just off the water. There is a sizable breakwater on the right hand side of the beach and on the left; a rocky area makes nice tide pools to splash around in. When shooting here, you have a couple options. The length of the beach will produce nice waves, but they mostly ramp up right off the breakwater and halfway down the beach. There are nice elevated embankments to get a vantage point at both of these line-ups OR you can walk to the right and get closer to the breakwater for some nice shots down the line-up. No matter where you go there will be trees to hang your gear from and shade to keep you from burning. Occasionally you will need to be wary of urchin flotillas that get washed on shore by a strong swell, but Domes and other Rincon beaches are taken care of by very studious locals.
