The memorable Point Reyes scenic coastline as viewed on the walk to the Point Reyes Lighthouse.

Drakes Bay Family Farms is surrounded by beauty, and we plan to keep it that way! Come up to hike, kayak, or visit some nearby national and state landmarks. Reserve your oysters ahead of time, and you can take them out to picnic in the beautiful Point Reyes National Seashore.

Point Reyes National Seashore offers a variety of recreational and educational opportunities, depending upon your interests and the planned length of your stay in the park. Visitors can easily spend a day, a weekend, or even longer exploring what Point Reyes has to offer. The park maintains more than 140 miles of trails, four backcountry campgrounds, several historical structures, three visitor centers, numerous beaches accessible by car and/or foot, and much, much more.

Point Reyes Lighthouse imageVisit the historic lighthouse
No trip to the Point Reyes National Seashore is complete without a trip to the Lighthouse. Located on the rocky promontory of the Point Reyes Headlands, the historic light (first operated in 1870) contains the original first-order lens and still operational clockworks. The 300 steps that lead down to the Lighthouse are a short 0.4 miles from the parking area. The lighthouse observation platform is the best place to see gray whales on their southward and northward migrations (January-April).
