Pacific Valley is located in the Central Coast region of California within the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary. This site receives low visitation by fisherman and tidepoolers. This moderately sloping site consists of extremely uneven terrain, containing many deep cracks and folds.
Pacific Valley is dominated by consolidated bedrock, and the area surrounding the site is comprised of a mixture of consolidated bedrock, boulder fields, and sandy beach. The primary coastal orientation of this site is southwest.
