Dillon Beach, CA
When Danielle and I got married over two years ago; we were given a gift of a complimentary stay at one of my good friend and mentor’s Vacation Rentals in Dillon Beach, CA. Life gets busy and it seemed each time we had availability it was rented out (I’m not surprised at the availability, the views were out of this world)! Living the RV life has given us the flexibility we needed to make this happen. We joke that living in an RV we are constantly on vacation so this was a nice vacation from our vacation. Danielle’s parents joined us since it was Danielle’s Birthday week.
Dillon Beach is located in Northern California at the mouth of Tomales Bay looking out towards Point Reyes National Seashore. All along the coast from Point Reyes to Dillon Beach there are spots where they sell freshly caught Clams out of Tomales Bay.
Dillon Beach is the only privately owned beach in Northern California.
The beauty of the rugged California Coast can’t be described and should be experienced by everyone. Particularly the drive from San Francisco to Point Reyes via the PCH. Once you get to Point Reyes Seashore follow Tomales Bay on the PCH to Dillon Beach.
We were really excited when we got close. The type of excitement when you’re going to a place you’ve never been. Where you have heard it’s incredible, and the views start opening up into incredible vistas just a few miles away from your destination.
Once we arrived we were greeted by deer.
When you walk in you are immediately hit with this incredible view from the living room. Windows line the entire living room and kitchen area. It also opens up into a back patio with even better views.
This is a picture from the Beach of the house above.
This was the view outside of our bedroom window in the morning. What a way to wake up!
Every morning and evening we would see deer. It was so beautiful to step out of the front door and take this picture with Point Reyes in the background.
The Traveling Pomeranian loves this area. Dillon Beach is dog friendly and we saw a lot of dogs playing fetch or watching the wind surfers.
Anyone feel like surfing? The undertow here is much weaker than most beaches in California. Because of this it’s a popular surf spot.
Dillon Beach has an incredible RV Resort called Lawson’s Landing. The views of Tomales Bay, Point Reyes and Bodega Bay are some of the best I’ve seen in any RV Resort.
When it’s time to get some food you gotta stop at the Dillon Beach Cafe. They also have a retail store with everything you would need so once you get to the resort you can relax and enjoy the activities. On Sundays they have an incredible $5 Fresh Fish & Chips that I highly recommend.
These guys had just biked from Maine to California. This was a few minutes after they just reached the Pacific Ocean. They biked the next day to San Francisco and now are biking across Australia. They’re biking around the world! It’s incredible to spend time with people who are such adventurists.
The view from the restaurant is excellent. They have outdoor seating so you can take in the view while you eat.
The wind surfers here are incredible. These guys got some big air!
Did you notice the houses on the last pic? These next two pics were taken from the house on the cliff.
The view looking north is of Bodega Bay. We had supper there one night at a neat italian restaurant.
Dillon Beach is dog friendly so you can bring your dog along while you go for a beautiful stroll for sunset.
Whenever we start packing the car The Traveling Pomeranian knows it’s time to head out soon. She waits on the console until it’s time to go.
