Garcia River Beach in Manchester, California

The Garcia River Beach is in the northern part of Stornetta Public Lands, a BLM-managed recreation area north of the town of Point Arena. In 2014 President Obama added the land around the river estuary to California Coastal National Monument. Most of this monument is south of Point Arena Lighthouse, but this sandy beach is right at the mouth of Garcia River on the north side of the point. There is only one way to get here and it’s a long walk south from Manchester State Beach. The southernmost beach access in the state park is on Stoneboro Road. From that parking lot it’s nearly a half mile hike through the dunes to the beach. From there it is almost another mile of walking on the sand to the river mouth. This stretch of beach is littered with driftwood and other things pushed ashore by the waves making it excellent for beachcombing. Camping is not allowed on Stornetta Public Lands.
