Irishman George Dillon and wife Mathilda founded Dillon Beach in 1858 (although some sources say it was later) and built an 11 bedroom hotel, restaurant, and general store.
In 1903, Dillon sold out to John Keegan with the agreement that the beach would always be named Dillon Beach. Keegan ran a stagecoach from Dillon Beach to Tomales where it met the train to pick up people who wanted to "take the air."
Eight years later, Keegan sold the holdings to the California Eucalyptus Plantation Company. In 1925, Ranchers Sylvester and Carrie Lawson leased the property and managed operations with family members adding Lawson Landing. The landing was promoted as “the Family Playground of Marvelous Marin County.”
From 2001-2018, Dillon Beach Resort was owned and operated by Fred and Nancy Cline. In April 2018, Mike Goebel purchased the resort which consists of a cafe, general store, and three beachfront cabins available to rent.

Sunset, moonrise, moonset (is that even a thing?), sunrise. harrycocciolo, obilabkenobi, and I had a literally heavenly Harvest Moon/early equinox/pre-birthday getaway at Dillon Beach. I love this spot so much - it just fills me up in all the ways....
My girl, Olivia 🍋
This person brings me so much peace. I’ve never felt more understood or accepted with anyone. 🤍
Insanely grateful for her existence, our meeting, and her willingness to let me capture her, everywhere we go.

This morning, after being in a funk for last two days, I decided to take a solo trip and head to my 𝗛𝗔𝗣𝗣𝗬 𝗣𝗟𝗔𝗖𝗘, Dillon Beach, in Tomales, CA. for a morning of creating, celebrating my birthday early, relaxation, and reflection on this last year, especially these last 3.5 months. I cried a lot, I laughed, I explored, and I made my self care a priority, by closing my eyes and listening to the soothing sounds of the waves crashing.
Being at the ocean always brings me a sense of peace and as I left Dillon Beach, my soul was filled with so much positive energy and while I know this journey isn’t easy by any means, the ocean reminded me of my faith and that everything will work itself out.
