Marshall Beach
Point Reyes National Seashore California


Marshall Beach is a gentle walk down from the end of L-Ranch Road. There are restrooms and picnic tables, and you can even get permission to camp there. It is usually deserted and very peaceful, and at low tide you can walk to adjacent pocket beaches. The waters of Tomales Bay are calm and relatively warm (compared to the outer coast).
