BEACHES There are several remarkable beaches along the Sonoma Coast. Doran Park Beach (immediately in front of the Lodge) is a beautiful, three-mile stretch of sandy beach and is a great place to pack a picnic, fly a kite, search for sand dollars or enjoy a casual stroll. The Sonoma Coast State Park comprises a series of sandy beaches that extend 17 miles from Bodega Head to Vista Trail to the north and can be accessed from more than a dozen points along Coast Highway One. Our favorites include Salmon Creek and Goat Rock Beaches.
