Last time you saw this stretch of rugged Monterey County coastline on the screen, it was in the HBO series Big Little Lies, a dark place where one character would go running, repeatedly, up to the precarious edge of a cliff.
Now Garrapata State Beach is back, in a decidedly more chipper light, with a music video by Miley Cyrus.
She's singing about So Cal (in a song called "Malibu") but these are classic Central California scenes: the rocky shore, fields of invasive ice plant, towering redwoods, rolling green hills of grazing land, blooming wild radish flowers.
The video was filmed this spring, including scenes at Garrapata State Beach, and the song is reportedly the first release from Cyrus' forthcoming album, with a title TBA.
Fellow pop star Katy Perry tweeted her praise for the cheery tune: "Love this! Sounds like you just pulled up to liberation station."
