Welcome to our Pet Friendly Rules and Guidlines
We at the Coast Inn and Spa understand the bond some of us have with our furry companions, and sometimes just don't want to leave home without them.
Fortunately, we have a fabulous location for pets. We have 4 acres for your little pet to roam and get some exercise. There is also access to the pet friendly beach just a short walk from our resort. You and your pet will enjoy the beautiful sandy beach and scenery.
Below you will find lots of great information on where you and your pet will be most comfortable and to ensure you both have an amazing time here on the Mendocino Coast!
Thank you for your consideration of our guests without pets.
To help assure a pleasant stay for all of our guests, please read the following pet rules. Please call the resort directly if you need a pet room.

Pet Friendly Beaches & Parks
We want you and your dog to enjoy the beautiful beaches on the Mendocino Coast, but ask you to be careful not to disturb resting and nesting birds, especially rare or endangered species like the Snowy Plover.
Some beaches are off limits to dogs, even on a leash. Here are some dog friendly beaches most require leashes unless otherwise specified.
The only off-leash beach in Fort Bragg is the the Noyo Beach. It is located off South Harbor Ave (under Noyo Bridge) in Fort Bragg on the North side of Noyo Bay.
There is another off leash beach just North of Fort Bragg about 6 miles called Seaside beach. There are no signs at this beach, just a dirt parking area alongside the highway where you can literally step off the highway to the sandy beach!
MacKerricher State Park & Ten Mile River and Beach requires all dogs on leashes. It is a great area to visit and bring your dog, but it is the home of many of the endangered birds. Park signage explains where dogs are not welcome.
Ten Mile beach is also a great place to walk your dog and most is privately owned without dog expressed restrictions.
Pudding Creek Beach is a great place to bring your leashed dog. Or walk "over" it across the newly restored Pudding Creek Trestle accessed off Elm Street (Turn West on Elm Street and right onto the street just past Denny's restaurant and Makela's Western shop. Follow through residential area to parking area and entrance to trestle.) You can walk for several miles on the old Ten Mile Haul Road right along the ocean bluffs.
Big River Beach is a beautiful beach to take your leashed dog. Just South of Fort Bragg in Mendocino you find Big River Beach. Driving South, just past the last of three exits into Mendocino, turn left immediately before the Big River bridge.
MCDOG Park- Maple and Lincoln Street by the Aquatic center, Fort Bragg. Off leash area for dogs!
Mendocino Dog Park- 998 School Street, Mendocino
