Hardy (formerly, Hardyville and Hardy Creek) is an unincorporated community in Mendocino County, California. It is located on California State Route 1 near the Pacific coast 5.25 miles (8.4 km) north of Westport, at an elevation of 23 feet (7 m).

A post office operated at Hardy from 1902 to 1915. The name honors R.A. Hardy, who owned a wharf nearby. The mill at Hardy Creek (which was around the point from Juan Creek) was part of the Cottoneva Lumber Co. at Rockport. The mill had a wharf and a railroad. The town had a large hotel. The mill was operated by E. T. Dusenbury, one of the owners of the Cottoneva Lumber Co. The mill was destroyed by fire and was never rebuilt.
