About Abbotts Lagoon Beach in Inverness, California

Abbotts Lagoon Beach is along the rugged western shoreline of Point Reyes National Seashore. The beach is backed by huge sandy dunes and a couple large lagoons. To get here requires a hike of about 1.5 miles across trails and sand (maybe a quarter of the trek). On the way to the beach the path crosses over a bridge where the two lagoons connect. Abbotts Lagoon Beach is great for wildlife watching. Look for birds in the lagoon wetlands and gray whales offshore during the migration season January through May. From Abbott’s Beach you can walk north to Kehoe Beach or south to “The Great Beach” of Point Reyes. The weather out in these parts can be unpredictable and severe with wind and fog common. Dress appropriately and don’t consider getting in the cold waves due to strong rip currents and dangerous sneaker waves. There are restrooms at the trailhead, but the beach is a remote and wild place.
