Tomales is situated on State Route 1 in Marin County. You can explore and gain knowledge about the history of the place by visiting the assembly room of the old secondary school, which is the home to Tomales Regional History Center. Dillon Beach is a short drive west of Tomales. The drive to the beach is a delightful experience in itself, typified by peaceful slopes lined with farmhouses and grazing dairy animals. Dillon Beach is a surfer’s paradise and it offers tide pools, lush sand dunes, and a mile of pristine white sand shoreline.
