Sandy cliffs at Schooner Gulch State Beach
Description - The beach and headlands preserve a scenic spot along the Mendocino Coast and offers a stunning perch for watching sunsets, or merely sitting in the grass as the afternoon sun glistens on the waters below. Fishing, picnicking, and surfing are popular activities here.

Attractions - Schooner Gulch State Beach occupies 70 acres of beach and headlands on the Northern California coast. Galloway Creek leads through the park and empties into the Pacific Ocean within the park boundaries. The terrain surrounding Schooner Gulch State Beach is steeped in industrial and cultural history dating back to it's use by the Central Pomo Indian Tribe. There are limited facilities at this site.

Recreation - This State Beach is open year round for beachcombing, viewing scenery and surf fishing. Watching the sunset over the Pacific Ocean is one of the most popular activities at this park.

Climate - Summers are generally mild. Fog is often encountered near the coastline, with sunny, warmer weather more common inland in the foothills. Winters are generally cool with considerable precipitation. Wear layers of clothing to accommodate cool to warm temperatures and good walking shoes. Rain protection should be included at any time of year.

Location - The beach is located on the North Coast, three miles south of Point Arena at the intersection of Schooner Gulch Road and Highway 1.
