Much of the shoreline between Capitola and Santa Cruz consists of bluffs cut into Tertiary siltstone and sandstone (and overlying more Pleistocene coastal deposits) of the eroding marine terrace. Pleasure Point and the Opal Cliffs have now been heavily armored to protect both homes and Cliff Drive. Rock or concrete protects the base. Sprayed and textured concrete protects the upper portion, lending to a Disneyland effect.
