The Coastside Community

Pillar Point Harbor – is the most active ocean-side harbor between Mendocino and Santa Cruz. It is located in the heart of Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary and also home to the Fitzgerald Marine Reserve, which boasts hundreds of bird species, plenty of land and marine animal life, and ancient Native American Indian cultural sites.

Half Moon Bay also hosts the famous Pumpkin Festival in October of each year, and is known for its unusually sunny and warm days, often in the dead of winter. Despite its rural seaside feel, Half Moon Bay is also a great getaway location for people craving good food and first-class accommodations. Here’s a handful of Coastside spots you just can’t miss, whether you’re in town to view the Monster Waves of Mavericks or any other day of the year. (Photos coming soon)

Pacifica is located just 12 miles south of San Francisco along the scenic coast of the Pacific Ocean. Known for its natural beauty, Pacifica is filled with numerous hiking trails through rolling hills that overlook the ocean surf and forested canyons. Rich in history, beauty and community spirit – there’s something for everyone!
