Sail, Swim and Surf with great Northern California Beaches nearby.
Goat Rock Beach
At the northern end of Goat Rock Beach is the mouth of the Russian River and the southern end is the massive Goat Rock which is hardly attached to the mainland by a narrow isthmus. Goat Rock Beach is frequented by beachcombing visitors and many wade and surf amidst these parts. The Sonoma beach is also a regular resting area for seagulls, harbor seals, and sea lions. Goat Rock beach is a great place to have a picnic with the dunes, rock formations, pounding surf and dramatic hiking trail.
Sonoma Coast State Beach
At Sonoma Coast State Beach, rugged headlands tower over long sandy Sonoma beaches while a stony coastline with secluded coves gives beachcombers a surreal coastal experience. The Beach, really a chain of Sonoma beaches separated by rock bluffs and headlands, extends 17 miles from Bodega Head to Vista Trail located 4 miles north of Jenner. Take your beachcombing to a whole other level.
Stillwater Cove Park
The park offers picnic facilities and a spectacular view of the Pacific Ocean from Stillwater Cove. Open meadows mingle with coastal forest areas while the small cove provides opportunities for small boat operators, skin and scuba divers and is an outstanding exploration area for abalone divers. A launch facility is available for people to load and off load their boats or kayaks at this Sonoma beach.
