Owner description: A rugged and recommended whale-watching promontory along the California coast.

One of the best hikes ever with 360-degree views. It's not difficult, but be ready for the wind. Try to choose a sunny day.

Worth the ride and hike. Great view of the coast.

Temperatures drop near the coast. Were appropriate clothing.

Great view just from the parking lot - if you're in the area, make sure to drive out and take in the ocean views. Come near sunset if possible.

Walking on the trails of bodega head you will have fantastic views of the cliffs, catch some seals basking in the sun on a rock, and be immersed in the dense fog. Bring warm clothes since it can be chilly at times.

Small beach, with waves crashing on rocks around the outside of the small cove. A good view from parking area but fog limited the ocean views.
