Detailed Description

Estero de Limantour is a small bay and lagoon on the south end of Drakes Bay. The high headland area of Point Reyes is in the distance. Note the crescent shape of Drakes Bay. The barrier island associated with Limantour Beach is actually a spit that built up from sediment that migrated northward along the coast, transported by prevailing longshore currents.
