3 Best Beaches in Half Moon Bay

Half Moon Bay is home to miles of stunning coastline. These are three of the best beaches to visit in Half Moon Bay, California.

Gray Whale Cove

This cove beach has a wide stretch of sand with plenty of space to find a relaxing spot. The waves are a bit wild here, so I don’t recommend swimming.

Montara State Beach

Montara is a beautiful white sand beach popular for fishing and surfing. The bluffs above the beach burst into pink as wildflowers bloom in the spring.

Miramar Beach

Accessing this beach can be difficult. There is no designated beach parking lot and the path down to the sand is steep. But you can walk the coastal trail here!
