Salmon Creek Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This is a powerful beach break north of Bodega Bay. Salmon Creek is a consistent beach break that can hold 10- to 12-foot swells. It can be a big and heavy wave requiring experience, wave knowledge, and skill. The beach here is wide and sandy, and several peaks offer well-shaped lefts and rights.

Sand being deposited by the creek plays a large role in how far out waves will begin to break. Even when the waves are good, Salmon Creek Beach usually doesn’t seem to get crowded. There’s plenty of room to spread out here, and you’re bound to find an area all to yourself if you don’t mind walking down the beach a few hundred yards in either direction from the main parking area."
