Beaches

Breathtaking California beaches, rugged Pacific coastline, Pacific Coast Highway (Highway 1), and picturesque villages – Bodega Bay, Jenner, Timber Cove, The Sea Ranch, and Gualala – are all part of the Sonoma Coast. The more than 55 miles of shoreline that make up Sonoma County’s western border is rugged, dramatic, and scenic – yet approachable. It's perfect for relaxing at the beach for the day, taking a hike, camping, or planning a romantic, private picnic. Wear layers; early-morning fog can burn off to reveal bright, blue skies.
