I'm taking a friend from out of town to spend a day in the sun/water. I always go to the same, crowded beaches, but would love to find something different - more mellow, private-ish. Years ago I went with friends to a spot that was deamed "the locals" spot, and thus not an easy beach to find. It's been so long now I can't even recall how to get there (born and raised in Santa Rosa).
Anyone have any ideas/suggestions?
