Westport-Union Landing State Beach is located in Mendocino County in Northern California. Covering over 3 miles (4.8 km) of rugged and scenic coastline, this beach consists of 46 campsites with ocean and mountain views. This scenic opportunity gives new photographic challenges, regardless of whether the photographer is a first-timer or a professional. Fishing is common on this beach.

This beach is located 19 miles (31 km) north of Fort Bragg on Highway 1. It is named after two early-day communities, Westport and Union Landing. Westport is a sawmill town that is still in existence while only few buildings remain in Union Landing.[1]
