beach getaways

Though the town has a tiny permanent population, Mendocino vacation rentals are becoming more and more popular, thanks to the community's incredible surrounding natural landscape. Overlooking the Pacific Ocean on rocky cliffs with sandy beaches, Mendocino is gorgeous in appearance and is also culturally satisfying. Known for its significant artistic presence, Mendocino, located four hours north of San Francisco, is a great weekend getaway for southern California residents and out-of-state tourists alike.

Mendocino Headlands State Park is near picturesque downtown Mendocino. The park features grass-covered headlands and a beach, with access from the mouth of the Big River south of town. Trails are popular with hikers and joggers. In winter, the park provides a site for whale watching. The Ford Museum features weekend lectures on area wildlife.
