The Northern California coast is home to some of the most amazing vacation rentals near redwoods and, of course, beaches galore. Located just minutes to Redwood National and State Parks, this quaint fishing village of Trinidad CA may be tiny, but there is a ton to see and explore here. Both in and around Trinidad  you can find the best beaches that Northern California has to offer. Stroll through ancient redwood forests until emerging onto wide stretches of absolutely gorgeous coastline. One simply must visit Patricks Point State Park  which offers lush trails and convenient beach access where you can hunt for agates, explore tidepools and catch the occasional glimpse of marine wildlife. At this park you’ll also find a reconstructed Yurok village  where you can experience a slice of the local Native American traditional life.
If you are more than just a land lover though, be sure to head out onto the waters of the Pacific to experience life off shore with Kayak Trinidad. Any time of year is a great time to paddle in Trinidad, but in April, May, and June thousands of migrating grey whales make their way north with their calves from Baja to Alaska. May through October is fishing season in Trinidad. Bring your gear and Kayak Trinidad can custom tailor a tour to put you in the best locations to increase your chances at bringing home dinner to your fully equipped vacation rentals near redwoods and so much more! If you happen to be in town in June also be sure to check out the Trinidad Fish Festival!
