Bolinas is located north of San Francisco by way of the Coast Highway 1. A short side road off the highway takes you around Bolinas Bay to the small town of 1,200. This part of the Coast Highway is very curvy and remote and covered with thousands of acres of forestland on one side and rocky cliffs that lead down to the ocean on the other side. The village of Bolinas is a quiet, private place and most people come here looking for solitude and to enjoy the incredible natural beauty of land and sea. Bolinas offers a good beach for sunbathing, surfing and exploring tide pools. For hikers, the Palomarin Trail takes you 3.5 miles to Bass Lake, and another mile in goes to Pelican Lake. This is a beautiful spot to stop and rest as you watch water fall down a rocky cliff into the ocean. There are a few restaurants and cafes in Bolinas, as well as a historical museum and an art museum. Nearby recreation includes Stinson Beach, Pt. Reyes National Seashore, Muir Woods and Agate Beach County Park. Bolinas is a place to sit back and reflect as you take in the sea air and surrounding beauty, but if you start to crave a little more action; San Francisco is just a short drive away. Come to Bolinas, the perfect "get away from it" vacation destination!

Bolinas Weather & Climate

The Northern Coast of California, including the areas of Stinson Beach, Mill Valley and Point Reyes Station, is a year-round destination, and its climate is as varied as the geography. Summers are mostly dry all over, with frequent low clouds and morning fog along the coast. Winters along the coast are generally mild. Rain occurs most frequently and heavily October-April, with January being the wettest month. The San Francisco Bay Area can be cool and damp in the summer (due to the fog,) which surprises many visitors. However, just a few miles inland the weather is very different with warmer temperatures and more sunshine. Cool breezes from the Pacific Ocean help keep summer from becoming too hot and winters from being too cold.
