Mal Coombs Park is located on the west side of the small resort town of Shelter Cove. There is a small rocky beach hidden away below the park. Mal Coombs has a parking lot, picnic tables, interpretive panels and a BBQ pit. At low tide, the abundant marine life is exposed in tide pools below the beach. Mal Coombs Park is also the home to the relocated Cape Mendocino Lighthouse.
