Shelter Cove is a small ocean front community that offers a few restaurants, a deli, and a bar with gorgeous views. Gyppo Ale Mill serves a nice variety of beers, lunch & dinner. Black Sands Beach is wonderful for taking a stroll or you can drive on it near the marina. There is a 9-hole golf course overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The drive there provides a peak into the King Range National Conservation Area. This is truly wild land! Stretching between Shelter Cove to the south and the Mattole River to the north, the Lost Coast is a wild land of forests, fog, waves, and sand and is only accessible to backpackers/hikers. This is real adventure. About 37 miles southwest from us.
