Emerald Dolphin Inn & Mini Golf

With a population barely over 7,000 people, Fort Bragg is the largest of the small towns along the sparsely populated Mendocino Coast.


Ocean View Lodge
Fort Bragg Lodging ranges from charming Fort Bragg Bed and Breakfasts, beachfront Fort Bragg hotels and economical motels. But where is the fort? In 1857, a military outpost was established to maintain order on the Indian reservation that used to occupy of the area, although it was abandoned within ten years. Soon the saw mills came to mill the redwood that built San Francisco, and as the saying goes, the rest is history.


Pelican's Pier Vacation Rental
Glass Beach is an unique "Must See" that the kids will love! Many years ago there was a trash deposit in this cove where Elm Street meets the ocean. It's been gone for a long time, but what remains at the waters edge are lots of pieces of rounded ocean glass. The ocean waves splash on beautiful rocks in the water and it's a wonderful place to watch the sunset. Chances are, you have never seen anything like it, and it is relatively easy to get to. All of the coast along Fort Bragg is absolutely spectacular!


Silvers at the Wharf
The Fort Bragg of today is a rustic seaside town featuring a fishing village in Noyo Harbor, where you can Charter Boats for fishing and Whale Watching adventures at sea. Spectacular beaches, award-winning Fort Bragg restaurants, a world class micro-brewery, interesting shops and galleries and an old fashioned train offering tours through the redwoods are the most popular attractions. Even as Ft. Bragg continues to modernize, the Old World charm has been preserved in some of the historical buildings.


Coast Inn and Spa
Ten Mile Beach comprises approximately four and a half miles of long sandy beaches, beautiful rock formations in the surf and the Inglenook Fen-Ten Mile Dunes Natural Preserve, at the northernmost end of MacKERRICHER State Park. Wheelchair access is available on a wooden path that takes you to the ocean. Or go north along the Old Haul Road where you can jog, ride bikes or push baby strollers by the sea. Just north of Pudding Creek, Virgin Creek Beach is well known as a popular spot with local surfers because of its good break.
Shoreline Cottages
The North Coast of Mendocino County is dotted with Villages that are unique in their own way. Just a short scenic drive up the coast you'll discover the seaside hamlet of Westport. It's best known for the laid back, secluded atmosphere with no crowds and easy coastal access to incredibly beautiful beaches. Located at the mouth of Howard Creek is a large sandy beach, which is recommended for long romantic walks along the shore.
