Sea Ranch Videos Will Inspire You to Travel
If one picture is worth a thousand words then these Sea Ranch videos are simply priceless.
The Sea Ranch was a grand experiment in environmental stewardship, land development, and intentional community planning. In fact, many vacationers rent homes in the Sea Ranch just for the opportunity to experience this philosophy personally. These six incredible videos will not only reveal Sea Ranch’s history, they will also awaken you to its marvels. They will give you a deeper insight to the environment, the lifestyle and the beauty that defines our special community, The Sea Ranch, located in California’s northern-most Sonoma County.
We draw from our collection of Sea Ranch Videos saved for you in our Sea Ranch Abalone Bay Rental YouTube Channel.
These six Sea Ranch videos may even inspire you to plan a road trip to Sea Ranch Abalone Bay soon.
The Sea Ranch: An Environmentally-Planned Community on the Sonoma Coast:
We’re especially pleased to share this one from KCET that includes our friend Marg Lindgren of Unbeaten Path Hiking Tours. In speaking about the ethos of the Sea Ranch Marg says, “It’s really about working with nature and not against it,”
The video tells of our environmentally-planned private community that stretches 10-miles along the Sonoma Coast. Our small community is renowned for it’s unique architecture and for being the first development to fully embrace the concept of “living lightly on the land.”
By the way, did you know The California Coastal Trail runs north of the Sea Ranch, and there is access to the public beaches along the community?

Sea Ranch Videos Explain the Community’s Vision
The following are excerpts from the documentary “Dream of The Sea Ranch,” by Zara Muren. Another historical tidbit is Sea Ranch was designed 1963- 69. Its visionary team included architect/ developer Al Boeke, landscape architect Lawrence Halprin, and architects Joseph Esherick and Charles Moore.

We love this one for all its history.
An Aerial View of Sea Ranch
Unfortunately, aerial views found in Sea Ranch videos are a rarity now that drones are no longer permitted to fly in the community without special authorization.
Without any further delay, we invite you to just kick back and dream of what your vacation may look like at Sea Ranch…

Sea Ranch Videos Include Our Home Movies
Whenever we have a chance to visit Sea Ranch, we like to add to our collection of Sea Ranch videos. Our videos include clips of our vacation life. Of course, they also include the big beautiful sea that makes up our backyard.
Recently we had a chance encounter with whales breaching while we took a sunset walk along the bluff of Abalone Bay. It’s not a fancy video, but it does show our joy of this chance encounter with nature.
Songs of The Sea Ranch
Of course Sea Ranch videos show the beauty of our community. But did you know they also show how this magnificent gem on our globe inspires us artistically?
Kronos Quartet was commissioned by the community of The Sea Ranch in celebration of the seaside retreat’s 50th birthday. Composer Aleksandra Vrebalov’s The Sea Ranch Songs connects with the spirit, nature, and architecture of this magical place.
“The Sea Ranch idea on a global scale might be utopian,” Vrebalov writes in her liner notes, “but through music, we praise its beauty and affirm its urgent relevance in our wounded world, so much in need of healing.”
