Point Reyes For Christmas? Which Restaurants Are Open?

Point Reyes Station

Station House Cafe

Boxing Day: Open! Power up with a hearty pre-hike breakfast, or stop by for lunch or dinner. Great to get reservations, even if you just call ahead before you head over…it will save you a wait at this very popular spot in the heart of Pt Reyes.

If you do have to wait for a table, order up one of their festive winter cocktails:

A Lagunitas coffee stout float with vanilla-bean ice cream

Peanut Butter Hot Toddy

Just for the holidays, they’ve added Lanson Black Label Brut Champagne to their wine list!

Effective Mineral Sun Protection for your Point Reyes Getaway

Even on overcast days, you're going to get a lot of UV rays. Here are some top mineral sunscreens to help you avoid dangerous chemicals as well as overexposure to the sun.

There's nothing as grounding and healing as nature. ⠀

The park is open. Let's take it slowly. Thoughtfully. ⠀

These trails remain closed: Mesa Road from the Commonweal entrance to Palomarin Trailhead, Chimney Rock Road, Mount Vision Road, South Beach Access Road, Sir Francis Drake Blvd. southwest of its junction with Drakes Beach Road.⠀

Remember to keep two meters (six feet) of space between you and other people who aren’t part of your own household.⠀

Bring a mask to wear if you need to be closer than 6 feet from others, and if you are going to restaurants or stores in town. ⠀

One person at a time will be allowed in restrooms.⠀

Bear Valley loop trails will be limited to one way traffic.⠀
Campgrounds, visitor centers, and picnic tables remain closed.⠀

Water fountains are not available, so be sure to bring plenty of water with you.⠀
