BeachExpert Tips & Helpful Hints
  • The park, like many in this area, is popular with divers and abalone divers—check with local authorities on abalone diving, which is restricted to free diving.
  • There is a concession here that takes visitors on guided kayak tours off the beach; look for them in the beach parking lot.
  • The area also has ten miles of trails; check out the pygmy forest with mature cypress and pine trees standing from six inches to eight feet high.

Three miles south of Mendocino
