Why locals recommend it
This sandy Marin beach, set in a cove, is a local favorite. As you walk onto the beach, you pass over Redwood Creek, a diverse wetland ecosystem, home to numerous shorebirds and even some endangered Coho salmon. Head to Muir Beach Overlook for a chance to see gray whales breaching in the winter or monarch butterflies in the pine trees. A perfect weekend picnic spot, Muir Beach is a great place to spend a day with the whole family. Bring layers just in case the fog rolls in.

Our favorite beach - plenty of hiking trails nearby as well as a beautiful dog friendly beach. You can hit the Pelican Inn Pub for a drink and bite to eat on your way in or out.

A smaller beach a little closer than Stinson Beach with a calm area perfect for little ones.
