Half Moon Bay

A coastal community famous for its fantastic surf, arts scene, and beautiful vistas.

  • Coastal California
  • Surfing
  • Beaches
  • Arts and Culture
  • Beach Town

The steep, curved cliffs that form the crescent shape of Half Moon Bay form a dramatic setting for this beachfront community. Half Moon Bay is a dream destination for surfers -- it features some of the tallest waves in California, and this is where the Mavericks Surf Contest is held. The "Mavericks," as the area is known to surfers, can have waves as tall as 60 feet. If you can tear yourself away from the stunning coastline, you'll enjoy easy proximity to nearby San Mateo (12 miles northeast), San Francisco (27 miles northeast), and San Jose (38 miles southwest).

If you aren't a big-wave surfer, you'll still love renting in Half Moon Bay -- even if it is just for the views alone. The 181-acre Half Moon Bay State Beach is ideal for beachcombing, sunbathing, picnicking, or just relaxing and watching the surfers. The park also offers hiking and biking trails and a campground. You can also watch the boats in Pillar Point Harbor, enjoy the art galleries and workshops downtown, attend the annual Art and Pumpkin Festival, or visit some of the city's historic sites.
