Stopped after lunch at the parking lot and eventually found the trail to be able to access and enjoy the seaside walk. The beach and cliffs are beautiful but watch out even in July that water is very cold. Very quiet walk together with only a few other people passing by during the hour that we walked.

Perfect for the beack, hiking, relaxing and exploring. Have visited many times and each was a new experience. If you like the area this is a perfect place to relax and take in the views. Lots of native animals as well as some beautiful plants.

This is a lovely place in which to just wander down a path and relax. There are picnic tables and hawks! It doesn't get any better than that, does it?

This seems more like a state park. It has a good, if small, visitor center (and restrooms nearby). From the visitor center you have lovely views of the river flowing into the ocean with benches for resting. Good variety of terrain and scenery. You can take a mostly flat walk thru a meadow to fabulous ocean bluff vistas. There is... More

Although we weren't there for the whale migration it was a great park with many spots to comfortably watch the whales. We hiked the perimeter trail, an easy trail with nice views. The Serges near the entry of the park were very interesting

Beautiful, Pet friendly and Well-maintained. It costs $7 to park, which at first seemed a bit much but the money is definitely put back into the park. We highly recommend a visit and plan to spend a few hours to go down all the walking paths that you can handle.

Very well manicured walking paths to get from the parking lot to the beach. Pet friendly, bags and trash cans along the way and lots of park benches to take a break. The beach and ocean are gorgeous. Deep sand which is hard to walk until you get o the waters edge. Lots of driftwood, but not many shells.

The Gualala Point Regional Part is located at the North end of Sea Ranch. One can park the car and descend to the beach next to the Visitor Center or head south on the Sea Ranch trail which follows the bluff for about 8 miles with breathtaking views, a sequence of small beaches, some of them accessible, and opportunities to...

This is the only way to the beach. Parking is $7 per day. The trail to the beach is paved. There is lots of driftwood on the beach. During the summer ( or in droughts) the Gualala River has no access to the ocean. It becomes a lagoon. Very pretty. There are other non paved trails that go along the... More
