From the most #Instaworthy sights to armchair adventuring, we’ve compiled a curated, best-of collection of what to explore around the Point Reyes National Seashore.
On a sand pit between Drakes Bay and an estuary, this off-the-beaten-path beach is backed by gorgeous dunes and cliffs. Bring your dog for a run, or spend an afternoon swimming and picnicking with fresh Tomales Bay oysters.
