Stinson Beach

Welcome to Stinson Beach

Just twenty miles to the northwest of San Francisco is where you will find beautiful Stinson Beach, which extends for 3.5 miles and is a wonderful place to seek relaxation on the California Coast. The picturesque setting of Stinson Beach California certainly encourages visitors to engage in relaxing beach walks, and for those who prefer a little more action, the Stinson Beach surf often offers waves that are ideal for surfing and body boarding. Kayakers can give their upper body a workout while taking in views of the mountainous coast on the beach itself, the sand dollars and limpet shells wash in for the taking. Surfers and boogie boarders often rule the surf line (despite the occasional white shark encounter). All the parking is near the southern end of the strand, which is owned by the federal government.

North of that, the County of Marin owns a stretch of it (technically called Upton’s Beach) and dogs are allowed there. Beyond that, to the mouth of Bolinas Lagoon, the beach is owned by the residents of the Seadrift subdivision. There’s no direct public access to Seadrift Beach, and years of legal battles between various entities and Seadrift homeowners have yielded a compromise only a committee could love. Essentially, the public may use the beach, or at least the part below the mean high tide line (unmarked), as long as they sort of keep moving. In practice, the arrangement works with few problems, which is surprising since, on a clear day, some 15,000 beachgoers might descend on the 1,000-person town.
