Big, wide open, sandy beach located at the mouth of the Big River in Mendocino.

Make your way around the back of the Chevron on Main st. in town and just keep following the stairs down to the little trail that leads to the beach. 

The beach is beautiful with soft sand. Dogs are allowed but please note they are supposed to be on leash. Obviously our group wasn't too upset by being greeted by little Cricket. 

Great place to relax and read a book, walk along the shoreline, or photograph the sunset. 

Things to bring:

  • Snacks
  • Camera
  • Tripod
  • Blanket
  • Wind Breaker

Always practice Leave No Trace ethics on your adventures and follow local regulations.
