The Half Moon Bay Coastside is a rural seaside community about 30 miles south of San Francisco, and only an hour's drive from virtually anywhere in the Bay Area. This quaint Ocean community boasts numerous Bed and Breakfasts, several motels and some world-renowned hotels. Local activities include two award winning golf courses and a driving range, sport fishing, whale watching, horseback riding on the beach, a historical Main Street with unique shops, two wineries, redwood preserves, bird refuges, bluff and mountain top hiking, acres of hot houses and field flowers, historical walking tours, two lighthouses, Ano Nuevo State Nature Preserve (south of Pescadero), Fitzgerald Marine Reserve in Montara, Princeton Harbor, and Maverick's, presently the hottest surfing location in the world.
Spanishtown, or Half Moon Bay as we know it, is the oldest settlement in San Mateo County, dating back to the 1840's. Traces of its past are visible in the many historic buildings as you explore the communities that make up the Coastside. The area between Devil's Slide and Ano Nuevo boasts a very colorful past from the Spanish Land Grants in the 1840's to the Ocean Shore Railroad at the turn of the century, the rumrunners of the 1930's and the ever-increasing popularity of today.
The Coastside is nestled between the dramatic green Santa Cruz Mountains and the powerful Pacific Ocean. Because of the perceived geographic isolation of the area has not changed dramatically over the years. However, with Highway 92 cutting across the mountains to the Peninsula and Highway 1 running north and south the Coastside is very accessible to the entire Bay Area.
