All the beaches along the Highway 1 in Sonoma County form the Sonoma Coast State Park. The beaches of South Salmon, North Salmon, Schoolhouse, Portuguese, Duncan’s Landing, Shell, Blind, and Goat Rock form the map of the park. The total coastline falling under this park is approximately 17 miles. Not all of the coastline is made up of beaches, some areas are just rocky cliffs with water lashing against the rocks. One of the best ways to explore this park is to hire a car and drive down the Highway 1, making stops at the beaches. You can go hiking on the trails situated near the sea or set up a camp at the bodega Dunes Campground. If you are into fishing, there are mouths of rivers in addition to the open ocean for fishing. There are picnic tables at all the stopover points for you to enjoy a breezy lunch. You can spend a couple of hours driving or spend a day at the seaside depending upon your preference.
