Coast at The Sea Ranch

The Sea Ranch

Kick back, relax, and enjoy the breathtaking beaches and spectacularly rugged coastline at The Sea Ranch (pop. 1,305), a tiny, environmentally-planned private community stretching for 10 miles along Highway 1 at the northern end of the Sonoma County coast. It's estimated that about half of the houses in The Sea Ranch are rented out as vacation homes. 

Renting a vacation home allows use of the community's tennis courts, Scottish-style golf course, and 50 miles of private trails that offer panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean, massive rocks, migrating whales, amazing sunsets, and more.

If you aren’t staying overnight, there are public access trails available or visit the 195-acre Gualala Point Regional Park. Or spend a quiet moment in the Sea Ranch Chapel, a whimsical architectural gem that resembles a bird in flight or a cresting wave.
