• About The Mendocino Coast

  • Thank you for inquiring about the Magnificent Mendocino Coast. Spectacular ocean views and charming Victorian Villages dot the scenic Mendocino Coastline of Northern California.

    Mendocino Village is situated on a peninsula and surrounded on three sides by picturesque wildflower covered bluffs and crashing surf. Established in the 1850's, many of the New England style Victorians have been lovingly restored into romantic Bed & Breakfast Inns, world class restaurants and quaint shops.

    The harbor town of Fort Bragg is best known for the Skunk Train that takes its riders on a trip through the redwoods and back in time. The harbor bustles with activity from fishermen bringing in their daily haul for the local restaurants and charter boats that offer fishing and whale watching adventures. The flower meet the sea at the Botanical Gardens, a flower lovers paradise.

    Just two miles south, you'll discover the relaxed atmosphere of Little River. Combining a beautiful coastline and Fern Canyons with fabulous lodging and restaurants, you've found the perfect getaway from the hectic pace! For fun, you can snorkel off Van Damme, stroll along sandy beaches or enjoy a round of golf with an ocean view.

    The quaint seaside village of Elk is the best-kept secret on the Mendocino Coast. The spectacular views from the oceanfront Bed & Breakfast Inns and cottages are absolutely breathtaking and inspiring. This picturesque hamlet perched upon the bluffs, offers everything from an upscale wine & martini bar to an Irish pub and dinner house. Plus, exquisite ocean view dining to casual Cafe's with California cuisine along Mendocino's South Coast you'll discover Manchester and a Beautiful lighthouse in Point Arena.

    The Mendocino Coast is one of the most beautifully romantic areas of California.  We look forward to seeing you on the Coast!
