In the 1960's Bodega Bay is was made famous by Alfred Hitchcock's thriller, 'The Birds'. While film locations from the movie are still an attraction, most people come to Bodega for rest and relaxation. Outdoor activities abound, but Bodega is also just twenty to thirty minutes from spas, world-class wine tasting and excellent shopping. It is also home to the 4-Star Golf Digest 'Places to Play' Links at Bodega Harbour with both stunning scenery and challenging golf. Bodega Bay has large expanses of uncrowded beaches where your neighbors are more likely to be seagulls rather than people. Great restaurants abound and the scenery of California's Highway 1 which runs through Bodega Bay is legendary. And if you want to just curl up with a good book, views of the ocean and Bodega Head State Park make reading a whole new experience. Many weekend events take place in Bodega, from the Fisherman's Festival to art extravaganzas. Bodega has something for everyone, from couples to families.
Other Activities: golfing, hiking, kayaking, surfing, beach combing, whale watching, wine tasting, shopping, kite flying, bird watching
Golf: The Links at Bodega Harbour is five minutes from Owl's Nest Retreat. This course is nothing short of stunning and was listed as a Golf Digest 10 Best Resort Courses. The first four holes take you up and away from the ocean in a true links-style layout. At the top of the course on the number 5 tee box you are truly 'King of the World' with a view unsurpassed in Bodega. You then make your way down towards the ocean on the remaining front holes. The back nine is wider and a little more gentle than the front, and on the finishing holes right next to the ocean you have waves right next to you on the other side of the sand dunes. Who cares if you miss a shot, the view makes everything worth it!
