This beach is a part of the Mendocino Headlands State Park but it's missed by many visitors. Of course, many visitors don't have the good fortune of having beach weather when they're here. If you happen to be here on such a day though, definately take a walk down to the beach! To get there, go behind the church on main street and follow the stairs down.
The beach at Mendocino Headlands State Park. You can see the marine layer in the background. Many times that marine layer is also covering the entire town and a lot of the California coast for that matter. You don't see much sun when you have that overhead...
