Stinson Beach is located on Highway One, just north of San Francisco, California. The scenery along Highway one is filled with wonderful vistas and a great reason to visit Stinson Beach. Panoramic Highway also provides access. Directions to Stinson Beach are shown below, whether you are traveling from the North, South, or East! This beach is adjacent to a 51-acre picnic park, with grills, picnic benches and tables. There is also a snack bar open April through September.
Unfortunately, there are no campgrounds in the area, so the park is only open until sunset.
CLIMATE: As with any of the beaches and coastal regions in Northern California, the weather can be changeable and layered clothing is advised.
POINTS OF INTEREST: Point Reyes Lighthouse – A dramatic view, this lighthouse built in 1870 is down a 308 step walkway and built on a Point Reyes cliff. January through March, it is a great place to Whale-watch.
