Hare Creek Beach

When you stay at Shoreline Cottages, Hare Creek Beach is located within five minutes walking distance from the hotel property.

Known as a popular "surfing spot", Hare Creek Beach is 5.6 acres and is protected by the surrounding cliffs with a small creek running through it. Also, a great beach to take your pet and view late-afternoon sunsets.

Local Beaches

  • Glass Beach (Fort Bragg): Probably the most popular touristed beach, Glass Beach is an area where old polished glass washes up on shore and is home to an array of interesting tide pools. Glass Beach is located at the west end of Elm St.
  • Caspar State Beach (Mendocino): Less than 100 yards wide, this is a popular surfing and sunning spot. Huge tide swings and an adjacent small lagoon give this beach an ever changing appearance.
  • MacKerricher State Park (Fort Bragg): This miles-long beach also has a great view of the Lost Coast to the north.
  • Jug Handle State Reserve (Caspar): If you follow the bluff trail you get sweeping views of the ocean. In winter, this is great place to watch giant waves exploding against the rocks.
  • Big River State Beach (Mendocino): bike/hike/horse trail, river, volleyball, dog walking, fires on beach, shopping above the cliffs in the Village of Mendocino. If you follow the beach to the east of the bridge, you’ll come to the old haul road that runs for many miles through the park. You can walk or ride your mountain bike on a gradually climbing path along the river.
