About Anchor Bay
Anchor Bay Facts
Anchor Bay lies in the heart of the "banana belt", because of its unique microclimate; a warm column of air from inland spills over the protective coastal mountains, making the area warmer, with less fog and wind than the surrounding areas.

Anchor Bay California InformationThe pretty town of Anchor Bay, located in Southern Mendocino County, is considered part of the 'banana belt', thanks to its unique micro-climate - which is warmer and less foggy and windy than surrounding parts of the county - due to a warm column of air that spills over the protective coastal mountains from inland.
Located between the towns of Point Arena and Gualala, Anchor Bay - population less than 200 - provides visitors with a stunning view of the Pacific Ocean. Schooner Gulch State Beach is a favorite attraction for guests making a stop at Anchor Bay, providing an opportunity to hike, fish, windsurf, or watch the seasonal migration of whales.
You won't find any lodging here but there are a handful of delis, cafes, and general stores where you can grab all the fixings you need for a picnic lunch at Schooner Gulch Beach or where you might partake of a meal overlooking the picturesque Pacific.
