Best place to view the Ocean

We just got here and wanted to know the best place to see the ocean. I've only seen a little of the bay but haven't found a place to sit and admire it - like a park. Please give your opinions of good places to be near the water here! Thanks!!

OMGawsh, there's a dozen easy ways to get to the ocean. If you want a nice long walk on a sandy beach, just get onto the bridge over the bay, turn left onto the jetty and pick any of the turnoffs along the Samoa spit. In Trinidad, just a few miles north of town, there are a couple of restaurants that either sit right on the water or just above it.

There's Centerville Beach outside of Ferndale, Cannibal Island near Loleta, north and south jetty outside of Eureka, Clam Beach, Luffenholtz, Patrick's Point. Some of them have nifty tidepools to poke in, others are great for seashells. Have fun!

Go up to Trinidad, not far, and Patrick's Point State Park. It is lovely. You climb down some stairs and are right on the beach. The ocean is all yours. Nobody or nothing else but you and the ocean.

If there is a volunteer at the entrance visitor's station, ask if her name is Liz and tell her that her sister says hi.

You will love Patrick's Point.
