POINT REYES NATIONAL SEASHORE

Located in Marin County in Northern California, Point Reyes National Seashore is one of our country’s 10 National Seashores, preserving over 71,000 acres including 32,000 acres of wilderness, and 80 miles of undeveloped coastline. From sandy beaches to craggy seaside cliffs, lush meadows and rolling hillsides, a lighthouse to historic farmlands, the landscape provides habitat for a diverse variety of flora and fauna, not to mention the preservation of over 3000 years of cultural history. The variety and plethora of birds, wildlife and wildflowers is astounding, ranging from Tule elk to elephant seals, bluebirds to sea hawks, wild iris to ice plant, and majestic oaks to banana slugs. A haven for birders, over 50% of the bird species found in North America have been sighted at Point Reyes. Tomales Bay California State Park is also located within the park, close to the nearby Tule Elk Preserve.

A respite from city life, Point Reyes National Seashore visitors can hike, camp, cycle, horseback ride, canoe, kayak, or just sit and watch the crashing waves on a sandy beach. An hour north of San Francisco, there are B&B Inns, hotels and vacation rentals, as well as shops and restaurants close to the park and throughout Marin County, including the local communities of Point Reyes and Inverness, Petaluma (approx. 20 miles), Stinson Beach (approx. 15 miles), Novato (approx. 30 miles), Mill Valley (approx. 30 miles), and Bodega Bay (approx. 50 miles).
