Description
Schooner Glutch State Beach is located in State Arena, California. It lines the Mendocino Coast and provides some of the most scenic and gorgeous views in California. The beach is rather small, but still has people who flock to catch sight of the stunning views. 

This is one of the most popular places to watch the sunset. You can either watch it from the beach of perch yourself and your pooch on top of the massive cliffs to get a higher view.  

People also like to use this beach for walking, sunbathing, swimming, fishing, boating, surfing, windsurfing, and geocaching. Large boulders are also located along the shore, and when the ocean tide is low, large round rocks are also exposed and tons of driftwood pile up along this sandy beach as well. The rocks that are exposed when the tide is low are known as "bowling ball boulders" by locals, since they look like giant bowling balls sitting in the ocean and the sand. If you happen to make it to this beach January through May, you can whale watch as the whales migrate through the Pacific Ocean - it is a sight to behold, and your pup will likely watch with excitement with you! 

Dogs are more than welcome to hike with you on the trails and come down to the beach with you as well. However, your dog must wear their leash of 6 feet or less. At no time are dogs permitted to be off-leash on the beach or in the water. 

Overall, this dog-friendly beach is a moderately trafficked beach that offers pretty views, a perfect sunset spot, and a place to relax on the beach or take a walk with your dog. You will not find poop bags here, so make sure to bring your own and pick up after your pup!
