Whale watching happens on the various lookouts ... whales head beach is least developed. Lone Star has wonderful tide pools.

The whole of the Samuel H. Boardman coastline is gorgeous! We hiked down to some beaches, a few hidden ones, which gives a totally different perspective. Don’t miss the overlooks from hwy 101. They are breathtaking.

We stayed in Gold Beach on our way north but took the time to come back down along the coast to see the sights along the SHB scenic corridor. Well worth the time. Some beautiful stops with great scenery for pictures. Spent about 3 hours...More

Blue skies with a bracing breeze the May day we were there. Pleasant walk of about an hour but can be a short as you wish. Stunning scenery.

Nice trail about 1 and 1/2 mile round trip. What a beautiful ocean lagoon and natural bridge formation. We actually were able to climb over to the bridge and explore around the rock.

What a pleasant surprise. Beautiful beaches and headlands, especially Whaleshead Beach. Had almost the whole place to ourselves on a nice summer weekend. If you like the CA coast, but don't like tons of people and traffic, this is a suitable alternative.

Spent a day here with my kids hiking various trails, including Secret Beach and Indian Sands. Both were fantastic, and Secret Beach at low tide was excellent, with a cave and starfish and waterfall (and only a handful of other hikers). Indian Sands was quite...More

I was blown away by the beauty of this stretch of Hwy 101. Most of the sights aren't visible from the road, but rather by a series of turnouts and short roads or trails. The best way to visit each stop is to travel north...More

This is an amazing area. Try the hike down to Secret Beach or the more popular Natural Bridges. Both hikes are about .5 miles one way to amazingly stunning scenes.

In our experience, most pullouts are big enough for a motorhome but the addition of a tow car would make it problematic, if not impossible. Some of the parking areas for lookouts, etc. should be able to accommodate a... More
