360° VR Panoramas of Marin and the North Bay Counties
The East shore of Tomales Bay
Marin County, California

Highway One follows the east shore of Tomales Bay for ten miles between the non-towns of Hamlet and Bivalve. The scenery is great all the way, plus there are places to stop, such as Nick's Cove. A few key stretches of shoreline have been acquired by the state and federal governments, and two areas are owned by the Audubon Society. It is a beautiful drive, at any time of year and in any weather.
