About Dillion Beach

Dillon Beach offers everything from relaxing, to the sounds of the waves, to very active hiking, surfing, kayaking, windsurfing and paddle boarding. Our beach is the most dog friendly beach in Northern California, where well behaved dogs can roam and meet new friends leash free.

Within a short drive you can explore great restaurants, wineries, quaint small towns such as Tomales, Bodega Bay, Occidental, Sebastopol, Pt Reyes Station, and historic Petaluma.

Imagine renting or living in a home overlooking the Pacific Ocean, Tomales Bay, and Tomales Point. Whether you prefer to sit quietly, reading a book with a fabulous glass of wine or being active in the most beautiful coastal community, Dillon Beach is the place for you.

Dillon Beach is the perfect weekend gateway from San Francisco, Silicon Valley, Sacramento and the East Bay or making it your forever home!
