Alamere Falls is a waterfall in Point Reyes National Seashore, Marin County, California.[2] Alamere Falls is a rare "tidefall", a waterfall that flows directly into the ocean. It is one of only two in the area, the other being McWay Falls.[3]

Alamere Falls can be reached by following the Coast Trail from the Palomarin Trailhead. After about a mile and a half, the trail will pass along two small lakes (Bass Lake and Pelican Lake). Bass Lake can be accessed by a side trail that leads to a rope swing, and hikers will often stop for a swim during summer months. [4]

The uppermost falls in the system.
