Santa Maria Beach

Santa Maria Beach

Santa Maria Beach is a remote beach on Drakes Bay in Point Reyes National Seashore. The beach lies below a wilderness tent camping area up on the bluff called Coast Camp. Santa Maria Creek flows down a lush green valley and hits the beach at this spot.

You can reach Santa Maria Beach by walking south along the shore from Limantour Beach for a little over one mile or by hiking or mountain biking the Coast Trail for nearly 3 miles from the Point Reyes Hostel. Getting here by trail and camping overnight is really the way to go.

Dogs allowed on leash.
