  • This is more of a drive by and take a look kind of place. Don't build your itinerary around it. It is about the size of a gift shop (and that includes the gift shop that is in there). Cool stuff, but ...  more »

  • My wife and I vacationed to the area in June. We stayed in Santa Cruz one night and wee able to catch the surfers in the evening. This was such a big highlight for our vacation that we came back to kill an hour before we headed to catch our plane back home. Beautiful area with fantastic views.
  • Cool little lighthouse surf museum at the edge of the park. Fun facts bout surfin history. Great view from the beach.
  • Great place to go to if you are in Santa Cruz. Has surfboards from the beginning on the 20th century. Really nice spot, plus it's free.
  • Best part is that it's perched on the edge of a cliff overlooking rocks and sea. Check out the old surfboards signed by Mavericks surfers!
  • Just on the cliff road so great view from up there and the museum had some cool pics of surfers.
