,The northern and southern coastal regions are very different, but both are part of the California coastal region. The northern region is more mountainous and rocky with chilly water. The southern region isn't as cold and has more sandy beaches.
On the northern coast, the climate is cool, but it's never cold. The average temperature is in the low 70s. On the southern coast, the climate is warm and never really gets cold. It's called the Mediterranean climate.
Northern Coast- The northern coast has high hills, big rocks, and narrow shores.
Southern Coast- The southern coast has long sandy beaches and has rolling hills. The hills turn into mountains. They also have a number of large islands.
Plants and Animals:
California poppies, Camphor dune tansy, yellow sand verbena, sagebrush scrub are some plants that live in the region. There are also 80 species of wildflowers that grow in the area, as well.
Dolphins, sea lions, sea otters, harbor seals, elephant seals, bobcats, gray whales, sharks, puma, and gray foxes are some of the many animals that live on the coast.
The California coastal region stretches 1,264 miles on the west side of California.
The northern coast is also called the Redwood empire because of the redwood forests nearby.
Some cities in the coastal region are San Francisco, San Diego, and Los Angeles.
More than half of California's population lives in the coastal region.
