About Ma-le’l Dunes – South Unit in Arcata, California
Ma-le’l Dunes on Samoa Peninsula is a Bureau of Land Management property that is open to the public daily during daylight hours. This land is part of the Ma-le’l Dunes Cooperative Management Area which includes this BLM land and a portion of Humboldt Bay National Wildlife Area. To get here, turn off Highway 101 in Arcata or Eureka onto Highway 255 heading west and then turn onto Young Lane on the peninsula. To the left is the the south Ma-le’l Dunes parking lot (with access to Manila Beach) and to the right is the North Ma-le’l Dunes parking lot. The northern lot is closed several days a week, but is still open for those willing to walk into the dunes from the south lot. The Ma-le’l Dunes South parking lot provides access for those who want to walk their dogs or ride horses (both are prohibited in the North Unit). Hiking trails meander through the dunes from the parking lot to the beach. The beach runs north and south for long distances from here.
