One of our favorite beaches to visit in Sonoma County is Doran Beach in Bodega Bay. It is a very family and dog-friendly beach, making it a great experience for everyone.
The beach stretches about 2 miles long and is super easy to access since parking is a hop and skip away.
If you are looking to spend the night, The Lodge At Bodega Bay is just up the road from Doran Beach. The Lodge is really nice and has sweeping views of the water.
