Wright's beach campground is small, and it is on the reservation system, so plan far ahead or hope for a cancellation. There are about 10 sites that back right onto the beach, the rest are just steps away but may not have a view. It...More

We spent a day at Portuguese Beach over Labor Day Weekend. The beach is perfect - huge, nice sand, and plenty of surf. The parking lot got filled up pretty quickly after 10 am. We got there around 9am so it was no problem.

I went to school in Sonoma and never came to the Sonoma coast. That is such a pity because I didn’t know how it is so amazing. In fact, I’d dare say the Sonoma Coast is perhaps the mosgt amazing stretch of coast in California....More
