Tips from locals
Bodega Head is a great trail with amazing views, very steep cliffs, but worth it!
Beautiful drive out to the coast. A few seafood eateries along the way. You can hike on the bluffs or just watch the water crash on the cliffs.
Another must ! stunning views from cliffs of the pacific ocean within a 35 min drive. Free parking. Bring your binoculars as you may spot whales passing by on their way to Mexico or back to Alaska.

“Located right on Bodega Bay. Wood-fired oven menu with great pizzas, crab cakes, salads. Very limited selection but all is good. Go early for lunch as it gets busy after noon. Call first because hours are confusing.”
