Nice beach but you have to wait for low tide. Water is all the way up to the street otherwise. We didn't get to enjoy it because were not there at the right time of day.

This is a great beach and easy to drive up. The beach wall in the sand is marvelous! Music nearby and restaurants.

Such a great location to get close to the ocean and take in the fresh air of the Pacific Ocean. Great little restaurant located at Miramar Beach. Located north of half moon bay off the highway 1.

This is a long white sand beach along Miramar drive. The only drawback is the number of places to get down to the beach. We walked quite a distance before finding an easy spot to get down to the beach. Once on the beach it...More

Sorry I can't answer that question for you. I might suggest that you contact the Chamber of Commerce in Half Moon Bay. They may have a suggestion. Good Luck.
