A Dramatic Beauty
Jenner, a tiny town in Coastal Sonoma County, is situated on the bluffs overlooking where the Russian River meets the Pacific Ocean. Jenner’s landscape is dramatic—the stunning ocean views and tumultuous surf are awe-inspiring, while the town is calm and serene.
Jenner is a secluded destination, ideal for those seeking a romantic coastal getaway. After the heavy fog clears, the local beaches are rich with opportunity for hiking, tidepooling, and viewing wildlife. Watch for a colony of harbor seals playing at Goat Rock Beach or go beachcombing along the trail at Blind Beach, and wonder at the beauty of the photogenic sea stacks.
Start the day by exploring, beachcombing, or hiking through Sonoma Coast State Park . The park extends over 17 miles of coastland, offering a collection of sandy beaches, rugged headlands, coves, and rocky bluffs. Afterwards, warm up at Cafe Aquatica with a hot latte and a fresh-baked pastry. In the evening, take in the sunset from the back patio of River’s End where the Russian River meeting the Pacific Ocean creates a romantic backdrop to enjoy locally-sourced California cuisine.
