“stunning sunsets viewed from the perch”

The beach and headlands preserve a scenic spot along the Mendocino Coast and offers a stunning perch for watching sunsets, or merely sitting in the grass as the afternoon sun glistens on the waters below. Fishing, picnicking, and surfing are popular activities here. A small parking area with two trailheads is on the west side of the highway. The southern trail leads to Schooner Gulch Beach.

Are you in Mendocino and wanting to spend precious moments with your family or on your own?Then visit Schooner Gulch State Beach!!!

Park your car, and walk the trails that lead you to this serene spot that contains great sceneries.

We did some fishing there, but no luck..the kids were a bit disappointed but we calmed them down when we promised that next time they could do some surfing.

The ONLY time to go is at low tide (preferably with the tide coming in). If you go during high-tide, the "bowling ball beach" is totally covered by water. Don't know what Bowling Ball Beach is? Google it, then add this to your trip.
