Scotty Creek Beach
About Scotty Creek Beach in Bodega Bay, California
Scotty Creek Beach is an excellent pebbly beach where Scotty Creek flows under Highway 1 and enters the Pacific. It’s located about halfway between the towns of Bodega Bay and Jenner in Sonoma County. Several Sonoma Coast State Park beaches are north and south of here, but Scotty Creek Beach is not a state beach. From Scotty Creek Beach you can walk on the beach south to Portuguese Beach which occupies a long wide sandy cove. Just north of Scotty is Gleason Beach where homes are crumbling into ocean as the bluff erodes away. Highway 1 in this area will be re-routed inland in the near future to avoid losing it to erosion too. There aren’t many parking spaces along Highway 1 at Scotty Creek Beach and there is no official parking lot, so sometimes it is difficult to stop here. If you can’t stop and get out it would be a shame because this is one of the nicest beach settings in the area. The beach is flanked by rocky bluffs on both ends and across the road is a bucolic farm valley with the Sonoma Hills in the distance. It’s too dangerous to swim here so just enjoy the beach, the creek (if it’s flowing), and the nice views.
