Attention witches: there's a beach out west that is perfect for any bubble, toil, or trouble. If you want to get in the spooky spirit year-round, check out Black Sands Beach in California. This eerie coast has unique ebony sand that gives the whole place a witchy vibe. It'll make you feel like you're in The Craft

Black Sands Beach in California is the state's only beach with such dark sand. It's perfect for catching all the fall feels any day of the year.

Located near Sausilito in the Golden Gate Recreational Area, this spot is perfect in the autumn for any secluded "toes in the sand" rituals. 

Although it is a bit far from Los Angeles, about 6-hours, you can escape the city and road trip up north for the ultimate scenic drive. 

The best part is that parking is free, but the lot can only hold about a dozen cars, so you may want to arrive early to guarantee a spot. 

Use that extra cash to conjure up some snacks, concoctions, and sweet treats.

There are restrooms and trailheads at the parking lot, so you can take a hike and cool off in the water after.

Bring your coven, your pupper or black cat, and have an enchanting picnic near the shore for a truly unique afternoon.

Even though it's in a National Park, fishing is allowed on this beach.

What a scenic place to drop a line! 

If you're looking for an easy way to catch some eerie feels, this area is the perfect haunt. 

Grab your swimsuit and channel your inner Circe; just try not to transform anyone into an animal.
