Mendocino Coast, Mendocino

(4.9/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
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.
