Welcome to Trinidad

Scenic coastal views set the stage for this breathtaking seaside beach town
A verdant blanket of coastal redwood trees and miles of sandy shoreline define the landscape of Trinidad, a NorCal seascape known by many as the crown jewel of Humboldt County. Rugged bluffs, thick forests, and salt-scented waves contribute to Trinidad’s fairytale feel, which is complemented by the friendliness of the community and its storied past. 
As the first-known human settlement in California, Trinidad’s history began with the small Yurok Indian village established by the Tsurai. European settlers didn’t discover Trinidad until 1595 when Portuguese explorers caught sight of Trinidad Bay. Nearly 200 years later, Spain laid claim to Trinidad in 1775. The city flourished as a gold rush boomtown in the mid-1800s, becoming synonymous with treasure seekers and adventurers.
The most coveted homes in Trinidad often marry the rustic charm of the landscape with a sophisticated sense of luxury. Stunning panoramic views and modern accouterments add to the allure of these woodsy properties. Charming bungalows are also readily available in Trinidad, reflecting the best mid-century modern styles.

Local Lifestyle

The kind of place to escape the bustle of day-to-day life, Trinidad is an outdoor lover’s paradise. Whether hiking challenging stretches of ancient forests or traversing the shoreline of Trinidad State Beach, you can make enthralling outdoor activities your priority in Trinidad. More than just its natural wonders, Trinidad is also appreciated for its warm community atmosphere, boasting a tiny population of just under 350.  

Dining, Entertainment & Shopping

Despite its small size, Trinidad harbors several beautiful restaurants and various cuisines. Wine enthusiasts can sample from a selection of California blends and bottles at Moonstone Crossing Tasting Room
With its enchanting ocean views and upscale American seafood dishes, Moonstone Grill never fails to delight diners. The menu includes smoke salmon wontons, crab cakes, jumbo prawns, steamed clams, and broiled oysters — those are just the appetizers. Moonstone also has a robust selection of wines and a handful of specialty cocktails.
Perhaps the most recognized eatery in Trinidad, Seascape Restaurant, rests beside the landmark Trinidad Wharf and Pier. The seafood they serve arrives fresh daily, and people come from around NorCal for their clam chowder.
Looking for something a little more upscale? The Larrupin’ Cafe, open daily from 4:30 to 8 p.m., has romantic garden tables and locally sourced American fare. 

Things to Do

Visiting the ancient redwood forests is a must when in Trinidad, and there’s no better place to explore than the Redwood National and State Parks. As a World Heritage Site, the park contains almost half of the world’s old-growth redwoods, which can tower even higher than the Statue of Liberty. Hikers have access to more than 200 miles of trails, and nature enthusiasts won’t miss the chance to go whale-watching near the coast. 
Trinidad also maintains several exciting festivals and community events, including the annual Fish Festival. This special celebration features the finest local fish available and invigorating live music, both supplied by the volunteer efforts of village members. Another beloved event, the Moonstone Classic Surf Contest, is open to athletes of all ages and abilities. Beach games, live music, and great food accompany this entertaining competition, the proceeds of which go to protecting coastal land.
