Muir Beach, California, USA
Heading north on Highway 101, from the Golden Gate Bridge, the small southern
Marin "town" of Muir Beach is just 6 miles from the Highway
1 exit. It's comprised of around 150 homes of mainly full-time occupants,
who are lucky enough to enjoy the 2 beaches, the surrounding Golden Gate
National Recreation Area, Mt. Tamalpais, nearby Muir Woods National Monument,
Green Gulch Farm/Zen Center, Slide Ranch and, of course the "old"
English Pub, The Pelican Inn. This beautiful area is full of wildlife:
Monarch butterflies in the pine trees, salmon in Redwood Creek, frogs
in the pasture, fox, birds, deer, coyote
! Horses and dogs are usually
allowed on the beaches and some trails (but be sure to check with the
rangers for updates or changes), the waves are great for boogie boarders
and kayakers, the fishing is plentiful, and the star gazing is endless!
The Community Center has classes, craft fairs, and can be rented for events,
the Fire Department is volunteer and has a fun rock-n-roll fundraiser
BBQ each Memorial Day Sunday, the children attend public school in Mill
Valley, the zip code is Sausalito's, there's no cable T.V. (but there's
Bookmobile and Muir Beach has its own wireless internet) and the pizza
guy won't drive the curvy road!
The history is full of Miwok and Portuguese tales, and the current locals
are so very pleased to be able to live in such a healthy piece of paradise!
It is my pleasure to bring this site to the people of Muir Beach and to
those who feel strongly about and connected to its beauty! Please enjoy
your visit, comment in the Guest Book or email us, use the services of
the locals and come back often!
