Wonderful beach to explore, have picnic with family and camp. Fishing and crabbing is also good at this beach. Close to resturants and lodging.

Very extensive spread including areas for RVs and camping. Also the Coast Guard has a station here with a complete complement of personnel. Very well outfitted for enjoyment.

Had a lovely morning walk on this beach while staying nearby in Bodega Bay. Not great beach combing, but the beach is really wide and flat and goes for miles. If you love some good scenery with your beach walk, this place can't be beat

This is a county park with both RV and tent camping. A long beautiful beach to walk on . A little safer for young kids as it is protected from huge waves. But still you NEVER TURN YOUR BACK TO THE OCEAN!

Nice south facing, flat, sheltered beach with over a mile and half of walking/running space. Dog friendly, not over crowded, with hiking trails on the lagoon/bay side.

This beach is sheltered from large waves and is excellent for beach coming or just wading. The water is very cold, and great white sharks are in the area , so swimming out from the shore is not recommended. But we took our son here...More
