Visit One Of The Most Pristine Dune Systems In The West At The Ma-le’l Dunes In Northern California

One thing we love most about Northern California’s landscapes is just how diverse they can be. One moment you’ll be exploring a forest with towering pines, only to step out moments later onto a sandy beach, volcanic outcropping, or even a rolling vista of sand dunes. These sand dunes along the coastline in Arcata are an excellent example of the beauty that’s hiding in NorCal. Considered one of the most pristine dune systems in the country, the Ma-le’l Dunes are a sight to be seen.
