About Gualala

Tourism is the main industry in the former small logging town of Gualala. Kayak for miles along the Gualala River, only to stop for a perfect picnic along the waterfront. End your journey at Gualala River Beach, or head outside of town to the gorgeous views of Cooks Beach, sheltered by the wind in a spectacular cove. Top off your vacation with a stay at the cozy St. Orres Inn. The beach is just a short walk away to catch a lovely sunrise.
