This appears to be the only ocean beach access for the town of Gualala. It's just south of town, on hwy. 1. While we didn't go in, we could see the beach access that it afforded, from our hotel.

Gualala Point Regional Park sits just outside of The Sea Ranch, next to Sea Ranch Golf Links. Parking can be found inside the park, though many park outside across Highway 1. When you start your trek here you are able to walk the full coastal Sea Ranch Trail.

My daughters and I have been here many times since my Mom used to live in Gualala. The last time we where here was to watch the Ocean for a few hours and share stories about my Mom who had passed.

Spent half the day there. Hiked the trails, walked the beach. Got food and ate and read at the visitor museum deck. Free wifi too!

Camping or day trips are both a wonderful way to stay in Gualala. The campsites are clean and the showers are warm. Take a stroll down to the beach and walk along the ocean.

Very convenient stop between Gualala and Sea Ranch. Great views from the bluff trails with access to the sand bar that separates the river and the ocean. Take a picnic lunch and a bottle of wine and enjoy the view and sea air. It is our #1 place to visit whenever we stay in Gualala. Nice level trails are good... More

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. Offering breathtaking views to and fro as you climb/descend in elevation a bit, the windy beachside at the end was very refreshing. Head back inland for the... More
