This coastal park off Highway 1 about seven miles north of Point Arena has miles of ocean frontage great for long beach walks with your dog. The beach line curves gently to form a "catch basin" for sea debris, which accounts for the volume of driftwood found here. Five miles of gentle, sandy beach stretches southward towards the Point Arena Lighthouse. Morning and evening fog and windy conditions are common from September to May, so be sure to bundle up.
This is an area of rich grazing lands, flocks of sheep and herds of cattle which add a pastoral note to some of the most spectacular coastal scenery in the world.
