More than 55 miles of dramatic Pacific coast create Sonoma County’s western border. While it’s a stunning drive, take a break with the 17 miles of beaches and coastal bluffs in Sonoma Coast State Park. Savor the day at one of the many regional parks that dot the coastline. The Sonoma coastline is rugged, dramatic, and scenic – yet approachable. Relax at the beach for the day, take a hike, go camping, or enjoy a romantic picnic.

No matter what your speed for the day is, trails, beaches, and scenic overlooks will beckon you to get out and explore. But if you’re in the mood for an aquatic adventure, be sure to check out Sonoma County's safety tips for water activities. Get a free Visitors Guide and Map to start planning.
