98 ABBOT TS LAGOON BEACH The beach, located on the way to Tomales Point, is accessible via an
easy, scenic hike. After parking, stroll down a path lined
with coastal shrubbery and drink in the sight of Abbots
Lagoon before making your way to the ocean.
99 DRAKES BEACH Lined with towering cliffs, the rocky Drakes Beach is one of the most dramatic-looking in the area. In high season, the Kenneth C. Patrick
Visitor Center and its fun historical offerings make this an
ideal spot for kids and adults alike.
100 LIMANTOUR BEACH (pictured) Spend a day in the sand at Limantour. This beach draws
a kite-loving family crowd, but those looking to enjoy a
quieter day by the sea need only head to the dunes, which
offer natural seclusion.
101 THE GREAT BEACH North Beach and South Beach make up this monolithic waterfront; park
at either outpost to enjoy a sunny day in the sand and find a
prime spot to catch the sunset. Don’t miss the breathtaking
view of the shoreline from the Point Reyes Lighthouse area.
There is nothing quite like
gazing at the open ocean from
the shores of a vast
sandy beach. Luckily
for us, some of the most pristine
and breathtaking beaches in the
state can be found within Point
Reyes National Seashore.
