9: Alamere Falls, California
Alamere Falls is unique in more ways than one. Not only is it stunning to look at and listen to, but it’s always quite a sightseeing gift for those brave and active enough to manage the eight and a half miles hike towards it.
Since it flows directly into the ocean, it’s actually known as a tidefall. So if you plan on visiting, you could actually go for a dip after a little bit of sunbathing! Trust us, you’ll need it. Plenty of visitors have described the trail towards Alamere Falls as scary thanks to both wide and narrow areas you’re going to have to pass through.
All in all, this coastal scenery is well worth the effort!
