  • A beautiful bay with lots of outdoor activity possibilities!...camping, hiking, kayaking, boating, paddleboarding, swimming and fishing. Not to mention..... The place to get fresh oysters served daily at the surrounding restaurants
  • A small, often overlooked park at the edge of Point Reyes National Seashore. Most come for the Hearts Desire Beach, but make the trek on the Jepson Trail loop - well worth the time. Plus, it brings you to the less crowded Pebble Beach if you want to get away.
