Fodor's Expert Review MacKerricher State Park

Fort Bragg Park (National/State/Provincial)

This park begins at Glass Beach, its draw an unfortunately dwindling supply of sea glass (remnants from the city dump once in this area), and stretches north for 9 miles, beginning with rocky headlands that taper into dunes and sandy beaches. The headlands are a good place for whale-watching from December to mid-April. Fishing, canoeing, hiking, tidepooling, jogging, bicycling, beachcombing, camping, and harbor seal watching at Laguna Point are among the popular activities, many of which are accessible to the mobility-impaired. Be vigilant for rogue waves—don't turn your back on the sea. Amenities: parking; toilets. Best for: solitude; sunset; walking.
