Sitting on the Pacific Coast 28 miles south of San Francisco, Half Moon Bay is a picturesque area where you can play golf with ocean panoramic views, go horseback riding on the beach, and stroll through beautiful flower gardens.
There’s no reason to stay in a small hotel room with limited storage space and cramped relaxation areas, when the Half Moon Bay area has a wealth of spacious vacation rentals. The extensive menu includes luxurious, multi-bedroom, beachfront homes with amenities like expansive decks, fire pits, hot tubs, and media rooms, romantic ocean cottages framed by colorful gardens, and condos with swimming pools and Jacuzzis.
Fantastic beaches are the area’s main attraction, so grab your sunscreen, castle building molds, and towels and head to Half Moon Bay State Park, where you’ll find three miles of shoreline and four beaches, Dunes, Venice, Roosevelt, and Francis.
For hiking enthusiasts, try the Gray Whale Cove Trail, a spectacular experience with the Pacific Ocean waves crashing against granite outcrops below you, or the Coastside Trail, which traces scenic ocean bluffs. Birdwatchers love the Pillar Point Marsh and Shoreline in Princeton-by-the-Sea, where great blue herons, snowy egrets, and red-winged blackbirds can be spotted.
For lighthouse fanatics, don’t miss the Point Montara Lighthouse, which was built in 1875, and the Pigeon Point Lighthouse in nearby Pescadero, a 115-foot structure perched on a cliff.
Whether you opt for a luxury home with vaulted ceilings, terra cotta tile floors and plush furniture or a quaint cottage with a fire pit to roast marshmallows under the stars, you’ll find Half Moon Bay has a sizeable inventory of vacation rentals to fit the desires and needs of families. Enhancing the appeal, regardless of the size of property chosen, is the fully equipped kitchen, which allows you to prepare delicious money saving snacks and meals and forego expensive, budget busting restaurants.
