Big River Professional Review and Guide

"This is an easy point and beach break in Mendocino Bay. Big River is the break in front of the Big River Bridge in Mendocino Bay. The outer sandbars are shaped in part by the Big River, which empties onto this beach.

As a result, it’s best with a south swell in summer, when the bottom is the most consistent. The beach at Big River is well protected from northwest wind and is a great place to hang out on a sunny day."
