Sonoma Coast State Park - Review
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.

Sonoma Coast State Park, Sonoma Reviews
Absolutely beautiful place to visit. Totally worth the drive and inevitable wind that you will encounter. There are a few homes that sit atop the hill on your way down to the beach and I can't help but think how much I need to make friends just for that view 😁.. totally kidding!
Goat rock state beach has several different view points and two different beaches divided by the rock itself. The left side is more chill given the one way road which isn't bad and the right side tends to be more busy. The blind beach viewpoint has the best panaromic views and great to watch the sunset. Enjoy!
Lovely hidden gem of a beach in Jenner off of hwy 1. I love that it wasn't crowded on a weekend and there was plenty of parking. There was plenty of beach to walk and explore. The rock formations in the ocean were quite picturesque. A great place to relax, meditate, take a breath. Definitely coming back here!
Great place to visit. Sea lions at the entrance of the Russian river. Rough surf to watch and rocks to climb. .
Took my family there, they are from Colorado and Idaho. Everyone loved it. Perfect day.
