Nestled among the King Range National Forest, Shelter Cove, (population 804 and growing)
is truely a gem of rugged coastal beauty in Northern California.
Be in awe of these precious redwoods as you wind your way off highway 1 toward this Lost Coast village on the bluff.

Fly in for an overnight or longer, this is the coolest little airstrip in California ... 0Q5 well in my opinion at least.

Come get lost and find yourself in the Cove.

Breathe the fresh air, feel the moisture return to your skin,

Lay down on the smooth round black stones at Black Sands Beach,

feel the sun soaked warmth while listening to the waves crashing on shore.

Shelter Cove Activities:

There are a wide range of hiking trails for all levels of walkers:

Join the local morning walking group at 9AM for an hour loop around the airstrip starting at the lighthouse.
