Mendocino is a census-designated place located in Mendocino County, California. As of the 2000 census, the CDP had a total population of 824.
Despite its small size, the town's scenic location on a headland surrounded by the Pacific Ocean has made it extremely popular as an artist colony and with vacationers. It is a half-day drive from the San Francisco Bay Area and thus considered ideal by Bay Area residents for weekend getaways.
