Point Reyes: Kehoe Beach
San Francisco: Marin Headlands - Mt Tamalpais - Point Reyes
Kehoe Beach spans miles of pristine coastline, bound by imposing bluffs and lengthy dune bands. Rivaling Kehoe Beach’s beauty is the biologically rich valley through which you’ll pass to reach it. Drainage networks from the coastal hills above culminate in a coastal thatch grass marsh that supports a wide range of plants and wildlife. The Kehoe Beach area boasts one of Point Reyes’ best – and perhaps most underrated - spring wildflower displays.
