Mallo Pass Creek Beach
About Mallo Pass Creek Beach in Manchester, California
Mallo Pass Creek Beach is hidden away just north of the small housing community of Irish Beach in Mendocino County. The beach is in a rocky cove and has a distinctive pyramid shaped rock at the northern point. A small part of the beach at the north end is protected from waves by rocks at the point and is accessible at lower tides. The beach is widest where Mallo Pass Creek bisects this west-facing cove. Driftwood piles up on the beach at the south end.
For access to this beach, there is a small parking area just off Highway 1 with an old gated road entrance just north of it in some trees. The road wraps around a hill then a steep trail dips down and crosses a small gulch. From there a double-track trail heads down to the beach on the north side of the gulch. Don’t venture onto the farm which is adjacent to this trail. South of this parking area by a quarter-mile is another parking lot signed “Vista Point” that is excellent for viewing Mallo Pass Creek Beach and for whale-watching December through April.
