Ocean Beaches

Goat Rock Beach is a local favorite. Located near Jenner, Goat Rock features a lovely curving drive down to sea level. Walk the beach, watch the birds and enjoy the sea air.

Salmon Creek Beach is big, long, and flat beach with easy access and wonderful sand dunes.

For surfing beaches, head farther south on Highway 1 to Bodega Bay and follow the signs to Dillon Beach or Bodega Head. Call or stop by the Bodega Bay Surf Shack (707) 875-3944 to find out where to catch some waves. The store offers a 24-hour weather and surf report.
