While "shopping" is probably not one of the activities you would put high on your list on a beach vacation, you will be surprised by the few but remarkably wonderful shops boasted by our little town. Small local merchants have done an incredible job of putting together collections of unique items and it's fun to leisurely peruse the various offerings.
Meristem is one of our favorite shops. Have a look at the beautiful cut flowers and then head upstairs to check out the shell collection from around the world. Handmade jewelry, hats, and other gifts are hard to resist!
Right up there with Meristem is the Stinson Beach Book Store. A HUGE hit with grown ups and kids alike, it is the perfect place to pick up the latest best selling novel, a seashore reference book, or a new journal for yourself. Even better, they have a big selection of children’s books and toys.
Visit one of the two surf shops in town to pick up a new pair of board shorts or bikini! Or make sure to pick up a Stinson Beach souvenir to remind you of your trip.
And our newest addition is Stinson Beach & Home. Charming gifts, jewelry and loungy comfortable clothing...we always manage to treat ourselves or someone we love to something special.
