The Coast

Wild and scenic is an understated description of Mendocino County’s coastline. From the placid mouth of the Garcia River to the towering mountains of the Lost Coast to the quaint Village of Mendocino, the coastal region invites you to revel in its landscape and history. Sometimes shrouded by a fine layer of ocean fog and other times crystal clear, the coast offers a panoply of B&Bs and hotels appealing to couples in search of a quiet getaway. Families feel at home at a vacation rental or kid-friendly hotel/motel. With beaches galore all the way up the coast, there’s plenty of relaxing, paddling, whale and seal watching, and hiking for all ages.
