    It was a hot Sunny day here in Half Moon Bay. There was a huge traffic jam and a lot of people on the beach!  more »

    Half Moon Bay is a nice oceanside park with scenic views. The high winds make for cool looking waves that crash against the shore.  more »

    One of my favorite beaches near SF, wild and perfect for long walks. Recommend a visit if you're in the area!

    DOV: 06Feb2016 'Half Moon Bay Beach' and nearby beaches provide a real good way for a complete Sunday drive. It has set of beaches and good drive way. There are beautiful beaches, small hill areas near to the beach and water ways guiding to beach. The water is extremely cold. You can have nice fun time in the beach with football. However the food options are limited here. Have a real nice Sunday here!!!

    Gorgeous location with a perfect half circle view. Great walking paths at the top. Not free to park. Easy access (small incline) to the water from the right side of the parking. Picnic tables close to the parking lot. And bathrooms. There's overnight camping; day visitors have a separate lot and area.

    The beach itself is beautiful, but not for swimming. Water is ice cold and there are strong currents. Also it's usually windy there with chilly air. Great place to bbq. Parking gets full fast on weekends and you will need to find parking in the residential area and carry all your belongings from car to beach. Bathrooms were decent.

    I managed to visit here on a weekday early afternoon, and it was not very crowded. If you can manage the off times, this area is great for visitors who want to see the ocean and get their feet wet. Parking is pay per vehicle.

    It's a very beautiful beach. But it is usually overcast which makes it too cold to enjoy going swimming or for even a quick dip. It is windy and overcrowded for a decently cold beach all around
