Point Reyes National Seashore

by on July 08, 2012

This spectacular peninsula delights visitors with wild coastal beaches, dramatic rocky headlands, rich estuaries, open grasslands, and forested ridges.

Because it is on a different tectonic plate than the east shore of Tomales Bay, the parent rock of Point Reyes produces different soils and noticeable differences in vegetation. Visitors can discover over 1000 species of plants and animals including Tule elk, elephant seals, and gray whales.
