DIRECTIONS TO DRAKE’S BEACH – Point Reyes National Seashore
• Go north on HWY 101 across the Golden Gate Bridge.
• Follow HWY 101 about 9 miles north of the Golden Gate Bridge to the Sir Francis Drake-San Anselmo exit (exit 450B).
• Make sure you are in the lane for San Anselmo (second lane from the right) and exit onto Sir Francis Drake Blvd. heading west.
• Follow Sir Francis Drake west approximately 21 miles – passing through San Anselmo, Fairfax and Samuel P. Taylor State Park – until it intersects with Highway 1 at Olema.
• Turn right on Highway 1 and proceed north about 100 yards.
• Take the first left turn at Bear Valley Road and continue about 2.3 miles to a stop sign. Turn left, back onto Sir Francis Drake Blvd.

Sir Francis Drake Blvd winds through the town of Inverness and through pastoral lands. Follow signs for the Lighthouse as you go. After approximately 13 miles you will see the sign for Drake’s Beach on your left. Turn left and drive to the parking lot at the end of the road. (NOTE: The turn off of Sir Francis Drake Blvd. for Drake’s Beach is after North Beach but before South Beach.)
