Stinson Beach is about a 35-minute drive from the Golden Gate Bridge on California's Highway 1. This secluded enclave of fewer than 1000 residents offers the best of casual coastal living. Stinson's white sand and oceanfront make it one of the most beautiful beaches in northern California.
Beachfront homeowners enjoy expansive ocean views, free of frontal roads or development. The laid-back town of Stinson Beach has a small but vibrant Main Street with unique eateries, galleries, and a surf shop.
Right out Stinson's back door, the Golden Gate National Recreation Area and Mount Tamalpais State Park offer renowned hiking through redwood forests and hillsides strewn with wildflowers. Trails at nearby Point Reyes National Seashore weave through open pastures, rugged ridges, and coastal cliffs. Only minutes away, Muir Woods National Monument entices visitors to gaze in awe at the thousand-year-old giants and keep an eye out for spawning salmon.
