Manchester is located in Mendocino County on Coast Highway 1 about seven miles north of Point Arena. Manchester State Park is an area of rich grazing lands flocks of sheep and herds of cattle which add a pastoral note to some of the most spectacular coastal scenery in the world.
The beach link in Manchester State Park curves gently to form a "catch basin" for sea debris, which accounts for the volume of driftwood found here. Five miles of gentle, sandy beach stretches southward towards the Point Arena Lighthouse. The San Andreas Fault runs into the sea at the park. The park offers camping, hiking, fishing and wildlife viewing opportunities.
