Point Arena is centrally located on the Northern Coast of California and is surrounded by some of the most beautiful country in the entire world. Opportunities to enjoy nature abound, from hiking the land to surfing the sea. And don’t let the winter months scare you away! Winter on our coast is truly spectacular.  

And Remember, when out in the elements

• Don’t turn your back on the ocean!
• Check the tide schedule before beach walking.
• Bluffs crumble; don’t get too close to the edge.
