Arched Rock Beach in Bodega Bay, California

Arched Rock Beach is named for the big rock with a hole in it that is visible to the north. The rock is actually right next to Marshall Gulch Beach, but from there it isn’t possible to see the arch. The signed Arched Rock Beach parking lot is located just about three miles north of Bodega Bay along Coast Highway 1. The path to the beach requires a little bit of a scramble so be prepared and don’t attempt it when wet or if you are unsure of your abilities. Like many of the beaches along this stretch of coast it’s better to visit during low tides when more of the sandy parts are exposed. Arched Rock Beach is a state beach within Sonoma Coast State Park. Don’t swim here because the rip currents are too strong.
