Point Reyes Beach begins at the Lighthouse area and runs for 10 miles in a northerly direction. It is also called Ten Mile Beach (no surprise) and The Great Beach. A better name might be Caution Beach because it can be a dangerous place. A number of people have died along this stretch due to sneaker waves. I believe it has also seen a number of shipwrecks. I witnessed the crashed remains of one myself roughly 25 years ago. I spoke to the survivors. They were starting out on a voyage around the world. They started from Oregon or Washington, I don’t recall for sure. They didn’t get far, but the family survived.
