Climb on the rocks lining the beach to get a view of the surf, other beaches, lighthouses, and fishing villages along Mendocino Coast. Walk around the area and look out for the otters that frequent the river. Explore the bluffs and the caves underneath many of them, hike or bike along one of the trails, or go horseback riding on the beach. Be sure to ride the train through the redwoods, which takes you to places that are inaccessible by car and foot. With our world travel planner, Mendocino attractions like Mendocino Coast can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • We enjoyed walking the trail around the cliffs, lovely sunshine and crashing waves. Not to be missed.

  • Rugged and beautiful with lots of beaches with hikes down to the water….stopped at Point Arena Lighthouse and would really recommend the side teip. Fascinating!
