    The Hook

    Intermediate surf spot - great waves with a ssw swell . . . outdoor showers and bathrooms. Keep an eye out for Jack O'neil who lives down the street - the local legend likes to hangout on his patio and watch the waves.

    Soquel Vineyards

    1 review

    Good wine and excellent views overlooking Santa Cruz and Capitola from the top of the mountain. Reasonably priced wine tasting, a lot of times including barrel tasting. Run by 4 Italian brothers. We've joined their wine club and visit often, since it makes us feel like we're in Italy (one of our favorite destinations) at a vineyard or an agritourismo.

This was the first place I ever surfed that had kelp directly in ...

    Limited in size, marginal surf, this beach adds to the aesthetic appeal of Capitola but offers no enticement of its own.

    Lazy beach vibe today with few walking about due to rain and storm clouds looming... But perfect conditions for color to pop on the boardwalk and foliage ...
