There are sweeping views and a long beach at Gualala Point Regional Park. The hike to the beach from the parking lot (+/- 0.8 miles one way) is beautiful, passing by redwood trees, then into a meadow. The parking fee is $7. It is the perfect place for a picnic or stopover when driving on Highway One!

From the trailhead parking area or down the road towards the campgrounds, the hike from the wooded redwood territory to the beautiful bay/beach is only a short trek across a hillside or two.

This regional park, with a river on one side and the pacific on the other is a beautiful walk for almost anyone. It is flat and has bathrooms in the beginning and near the beach. The views are beautiful, the beach is fun and it is great to explore. Another bonus? Free wifi at the welcome center.

Walking trails, sculptures, rocky cliffs and a long, wide sandy beach make up this State Park. It is perfectly situated between Gualala and Sea Ranch.

We were pointed to the Russian totem poles and kept on walking. Didn't get to complete the loop, wished we had. With luck you see whales (we didn't)

Gualala Regional Park -- Expansive beach at low tide and lots of spots where the Gualala River feeds into the Ocean, good kayaking. The park trails are pretty flat and weave through meadows and with deer, egrets and hawk. Stop by the visitor center to learn about more wildlife and some of its earliest human settlers, sit outside at the... More
