Albion is a small coastal town located south of Fort Bragg and north of Point Arena, just three miles north on scenic Highway 1 at the junction of State Route 128. This rugged area of northern California doesn't have the kind of sunny beaches that normally typifies the state - rather it is a romantic, moody area of towering redwood forests, fog and mist, and a rocky, rugged shoreline. Albion is ten miles south of Mendocino Village and is the first in a series of small "hamlets" built along the coves on Highway 1, after leaving the Navarro River. In 1853 an English sea captain married the daughter of the Mexican commandant in San Francisco, and subsequently was awarded a land grant between the Garcia River and Big River. With his new wife, he sailed into a small bay at the mouth of a river, and named it Albion. This historic village consists of a town market and a few other stores, and a post office. Nearby Anderson Valley, which is a beautiful drive through the redwood forests, is home to some of the finest wineries on the West Coast. Albion is also home to Van Damme State Park, and activities in the area include kayaking, fishing, horseback riding, hiking, biking, golf and beachcombing. The artsy town of Mendocino is know for its fine art galleries, elegant shops and quaint boutiques and great restaurants.

Albion Weather & Climate

The rugged northern Pacific Coast, north of the San Francisco Bay Area, experiences a mild climate year round. There is very little variation in temperature from winter, spring, summer and fall. Summers are dry, but typically cool and foggy right along the coast. Further inland, near the Anderson Valley, temperatures will be warmer with more sunny days. Be advised that it can be in the 60s in the Mendocino coast area, and just 30 miles inland the temperature can be in the 90s. Cool ocean breezes and a thick marine layer helps moderate coastal temperatures. If visiting during wintertime, there is a good chance it will rain during your stay. November through March are the wettest months. Fall is generally the sunniest time along the northern Pacific Coast.
