About Indian Beach at Tomales Bay State Park in Inverness, California
Indian Beach is the northern beach within Tomales Bay State Park on the Point Reyes Peninsula. It is reached by hiking a trail for about a half mile from Heart’s Desire Beach where there is a parking lot and nice facilities. When you get to the Indian Beach Cove there is a boardwalk that takes you over a waterway from the wetlands behind the beach. At Indian Beach there are two reconstructed cone-shaped Miwok bark shelters that resemble a tee-pee. This area was inhabited by the Coastal Miwok Native Americans for thousands of years and you can read about them here. The self-guided Indian Beach Nature Trail follows the Tomales Bay shoreline and has educational interpretive signs along the path. Toilet facilities are provided at Indian Beach. From Inverness drive out Sir Francis Drake Boulevard and then turn right onto Pierce Point Road. Signs will point you to Tomales Bay State Park. If you want to come here on a sunny weekend then get here early because the gate is closed when the parking lot fills and that can happen before noon on nice days.
