It's a great beach to hangout and watch surfers, hike down and collect driftwood, shells and watch people. It can be completely crowded or just a few souls. Just north of Bodega which is a great place to visit and eat as well.

My husband and I enjoyed a full day walking around the cliffs and watching the waves at Sonoma State Beach. The view up and down the coast is breathtaking, I couldn't get enough.

As is the case on much of the California coastal roads the views are gorgeous and worth taking the extra time to stop and take a look. Some nice trails in this State Park as well.
