Mendocino Coast, Mendocino

(600+ reviews on the web)
Scenic Drive
Climb on the rocks lining the beach to get a view of the surf, other beaches, lighthouses, and fishing villages along Mendocino Coast. Walk around the area and look out for the otters that frequent the river. Explore the bluffs and the caves underneath many of them, hike or bike along one of the trails, or go horseback riding on the beach. Be sure to ride the train through the redwoods, which takes you to places that are inaccessible by car and foot.

  • The prettiest, rockiest, most wild and free headlands anywhere. The sea never fails to humble and inspire along this coastline.  more »
  • Walking the headlands was even better than some of the park trails but maybe because we loved all the birds, seals and sea lions!  more »
  • Wow! Mendocino Coast is outstanding. We were driving our fun car were so impressed with the spectacular views of the ocean. Next time we will stay a couple of days in Mendocino.  more »
