Bolinas is an unincorporated coastal community in Marin County, California. The census designated place is located on the California coast, approximately 13 miles (21 km) (straight line distance) northwest of San Francisco.
The community is known for its reclusive residents. It is only accessible via unmarked roads; any road sign along State Route 1 that points the way into town has been torn down by local residents, to the point where county officials offered a ballot measure to which the voters responded by stating a preference for no more signs.
Besides the public access beach near the downtown area, there is a county park, Agate Beach, which contains extensive tide pools that are protected as part of the Gulf of the Farallones National Marine Sanctuary.
The town also hosts the Marin-Bolinas Botanical Gardens, and borders on the Point Reyes National Seashore to the north. Alamere Falls, one of only two beach waterfalls in the continental U.S., is on the California Coastal Trail from Palomarin Trailhead at the end of Mesa Rd.
Duxbury Reef State Marine Conservation Area lies offshore from Bolinas. Like an underwater park, this marine protected area helps conserve ocean wildlife and marine ecosystems.
The historic downtown buildings were mostly built between 1850 and 1920 including the saloon that has been in business since 1851(they claim to be the oldest in California!). The grocery store has changed little since it was rebuilt after the 1906 earthquake. The gas station was opened in 1906 as a livery stable and converted to a full service gas station in the 1920’s. Bolinas shops offer excellent variety for such a small village, including one of a kind items made by local artisans, art galleries, a hardware store with sundries and even pet supplies, surf rentals, sales, lessons and summer surf camps, a natural food store, comfortable clothing, world-source gifts, books, a café which emphasizes local fresh food, an organic smoothie lounge with home-made baked goods, the only gas station between Mill Valley and Pt. Reyes, and an outstanding fine arts museum with an exhibition gallery and an exhibit space featuring artifacts and photographs devoted to the fascinating history of the town.
Bathed by refreshing ocean breezes, this secluded enclave of fewer than 1,000 residents offers the best of casual coastal living. Only a 35-minute drive from the Golden Gate Bridge on California state Route 1, Stinson Beach provides a welcome escape from the frantic pace of everyday life. Beachfront homeowners enjoy expansive ocean views, free of frontal roads or development. The laid-back town of Stinson Beach has a small but vibrant Main Street with unique eateries, galleries, and a surf shop. After an exuberant day of swimming, surfing, hiking, or hang gliding, locals head for the patio of the Sand Dollar Restaurant for a plate of fish tacos and a cold beer. Right in Stinson Beach’s backyard, the Golden Gate National Recreation Area and Mount Tamalpais State Park offer hiking through towering redwood forests and hillsides strewn with wildflowers. Trails at nearby Point Reyes National Seashore weave through open pastures, rugged ridges, and coastal cliffs. Only minutes away, Muir Woods National Monument entices visitors to gaze in awe at the thousand-year old giant trees. Stinson Beach comes alive on the second Sunday of June, when it serves as the ending point for the annual running of the Dipsea Race, the second-oldest foot race in the U.S. In early fall, the California Road Club holds its Mt. Tamalpais Hill Climb, one of the oldest bicycle races in the West. Beachfront homes in Stinson Beach provide a magnificent view of the Pacific Ocean. Sunny bungalows in town offer lush gardens and a casual, barefoot lifestyle. Wherever you choose to live in Stinson Beach, you’ll be only moments away from quiet sunset walks on the beach or energizing hikes through endless acres of open space.
