A very popular place that draws a lot of people. Near the conveniences of Bodega Bay. Can be very cool if the fog is in.

This place was perfect for us to let our dogs enjoy the ocean! Gentle waves, shallow slope, long open stretch of sandy shore. Pretty too, and very clean, with restrooms available. Nice!

Best place in Bodega to camp but very hard to get into anymore. No more first come first serve. Reservations are filled almost a year ahead. The bay is beautiful. The beach is dog friendly. Clean restrooms.

Beautiful view and great place to spend time with the kids. Walked the length of the beach and enjoyed the spectacular views. Park by the main parking lot so that you have access to the bathrooms, esp if you have little kids.

Many people fish off the jetty everyday, I have seen some catch crabs with small traps during season.
