Explore secret coves, sea caves, and pristine tide pools or just stroll along the sand gazing out across the vast ocean at Sonoma Coast State Beach. In the summer, cool ocean breezes make the 13 beaches of Sonoma Coast State Park perfect for those who seek to escape the inland heat. Beachcombers, sunbathers, anglers, and picnickers all flock to this craggy coastline, while rock bluffs and headlands overlooking the ocean attract hikers and wildlife lovers who come to enjoy spring wildflowers or to watch whales in the winter. Note that the surf is too dangerous for swimming.
