It is one of the best places to watch ocean and waves. The long way worth to take for seeing such a beautiful view towards the infinity!!! You could hike and bike there. The restaurant in the way (Spud point crab co.) was very good and friendly.

Whale watching, etc. Great views of the crashing surf and the boats coming and going. We saw 3 whales blow and one fishing boat returning to port. It is so relaxing taking all of nature in.

Bodega Head is easily one of the most beautiful trails that we've ever hiked, and also the easiest! It took us around 1.5-2 hours to complete the "hike", but that's because we stopped along the way at many different places to take photos and just admire the scenery. We had on tennis shoes, but you could easily complete this in... More

This is a spectacular area on the oceanfront with many hiking trails. Note the coast is always cool and can be windy so plan accordingly.

If you are driving up the coast it is definitely worth driving around to Bodega Head. Make sure you walk further from the parking lot up to the cliffs to seethe 360 views.

This is worth the drive to see Bodega Head. It is an easy trail to take and the views are spectacular. We visited the beginning of October and the weather was great. If you are in the area, it is worth the time to visit.

Not too difficult trail to walk with magnificent views of the wild rocky beach from high above. It was a but foggy when we walked there, still had it's own "mysterious" beauty. Came back later in the day when the fog cleared for a sunny view, breathtaking.
