Beautiful hike along the cliffs of Mendocino. Explore tide pools while enjoying amazing views in Northern California Despite its small size, Mendocino's scenic location on a headland surrounded by the Pacific Ocean has made it extremely popular as an artist colony and with vacationers. Because it is less than four hours by car from the San Francisco Bay Area, it is a popular weekend getaway spot for Bay Area residents. The cliffs just southwest of the town's Main St. offer a mixture of beautiful rocky cliffs, crashing waves, and tidepools.
