Unrivaled Coastal Access

Whether you prefer exploring the Pacific coast from the comfort of your car, or by taking a leisurely walk, run, or bike ride, all trails lead to the Beachcomber Motel and Spa On the Beach in Fort Bragg, California.

In particular, the recently completed Noyo Headlands Coastal Trail sure does.

This multi-use, ADA-accessible paved trail is part of the 1,200-mile California Coastal Trail and features spectacular views, easy access, restrooms, and one-of-a-kind benches made by local artists. It’s six miles of stunning Mendocino coastline, most of which had been closed off to the public for over a century.

Bikers, strollers, roller bladers, hikers, runners, and leashed dogs are welcome along the path that connects on its north end to MacKerricher State Park and on its south end to the Noyo Harbor and Pomo Bluffs Park. Wildlife viewing opportunities here are superb and there are several interpretive panels explaining the human and natural history of the area.

It’s really a special treat for all visitors to Fort Bragg, and certainly a unique amenity for our guests at the Beachcomber, as well as our sister property next door, the Surf & Sand Lodge, said Jon Glidewell, General Manager of Beachcomber Hotels. Being directly on the trail, along with our bike rentals and day spa, we’re able to offer a coastal experience that few can match when it comes to convenience.

Of course, the convenience doesn’t stop there. With such amenities as free wifi, free continental breakfast, dog-friendly suites, a dog park and leash-free run, guest laundry, outdoor BBQ decks, fire pits, and more (did we mention the views?) – your stay is sure to be easy and affordable.
