Whale Rock is the perfect spot for a romantic getaway or a family
vacation. Perched on a bluff along the Mendocino coast, Whale
Rock offers both captivating natural beauty and an exciting outdoor
playground for children and adults.
Rock is ten minutes north of Fort Bragg and only twenty minutes
north of the village of Mendocino. The small city of Fort Bragg
offers a full array of services, from excellent food markets to
yoga classes to salmon fishing charters. The former lumber and
commercial fishing community now features many fine restaurants,
antique shops, and the Skunk Train, which offers a fun half-day
excursion through the old redwood forests of Mendocino County.
The alluring artist colony of Mendocino is a unique treasure of
boutiques, art galleries, and gourmet dining spots.
much as the area offers, most visitors to Whale Rock would rather
not leave at all, preferring to spend every possible minute on
this blissful bluff on the Mendocino coast.
