Bowling Ball Beach in Mendocino County, California is a secluded, quiet beach on the West Coast. Bowling Ball Beach is a part of Schooner Gulch State Beach, in Mendocino County. Named after the spherical sandstone formations, which look kind of like bowling balls, Bowling Ball Beach can be found far up Hwy 1. If the tide level is just right, this expansive beach is well worth the trip.
