We couldn't stop taking pictures here! It was so beautiful at every angle! We are so glad a gal in Sausolito recommended Goat Rock Beach!! A must see place if you're in the Highway 1 area!

The views of the Pacific from the top ledges are spectacular. Rocks jetting out with waves crashing... Plenty of areas to pull off and view. Well worth the trip
