Mal Coombs Park in Shelter Cove, California

Mal Coombs Park is located on the west side of the small resort town of Shelter Cove. There is a small rocky beach hidden away below the park. Many visitors never get past the Shelter Cove Lighthouse which stands in the center of the park. The lighthouse is actually the old Cape Mendocino Lighthouse which was moved to this location near Point Delgada and reassembled in the year 2000. The park has a parking lot and picnic tables just steps from the lighthouse and the beach. At low tide, the abundant marine life is exposed in tide pools below the beach. Nicer sandy beaches are nearby, including Black Sands Beach and Shelter Cove Beach where you can walk the shoreline. The Oceanfront Inn and the Shelter Cove Campground are both next to Mal Coombs Park. Other accommodations and restaurants are nearby in town.
