    Maverick's Surf Break

    Half Moon Bay, California
    4.5
    18 reviews

    I love walking or biking the trail out to Maverick's Beach (formerly known as Microwave Beach). My favorite time to go is in bad weather, or early in the morning before the dog walkers arrive. You can walk out there, and on most tides walk to the north end of the beach and in the winter, when the conditions are ...

    I've never camped here, but often ride by on my bike. You can pitch your tent on a cliff over the ocean. Campsites have picnic tables, fire pits, and restrooms nearby. There's also space for RVs. It can get windy, and it's rarely hot. If you have a bicycle set out on the paved Coastal Trail. Or bring your board ...

    Even when foggy this is a great hike between two sets of restaurant satellites. Great place for young kids starting to hike. Views are breathtaking and the weather can change unpredictably so bring a sweater.

    Redondo Beach

    4.5
    5 reviews

    Redondo beach is one of the prettier beaches in the Half Moon Bay area. Like most beaches in northern California, it tends to be cool and windy even on a warm day, so bring a jacket and don't worry as much about swim gear. The beach itself sits at the base of grass covered cliffs, and is accessible only by ...

    My friend and I bought the Living Social deal in November. We lost track of time and the voucher was expiring soon; luckily they don't take reservations more than a week in advance! We cut it really close on time...there was traffic on the 92 on a Sunday afternoon! We made it just in time, signed the waivers, got helmets, ...

    Next to New is in a small white house on Kelly Ave, just off of Highway One. Every corner is full of used clothes, housewares, books, jewelry and collectibles. The place is tidy and everything is well-cared for. I like to start in the rear of the store, stepping outside into a shelf-lined metal container to look at books, furniture, ...

    Main Street or downtown Half Moon Bay often gets overlooked by visitors because it is not near the ocean, in fact, it almost seems like it is off the beaten path. Set back much further inland (on the east side of the Cabrillo HWY, Downtown HMB actually is a vibrant neighborhood with many nice restaurants and shops (just without the ...

    Pretty beach. We saw dolphins and tons of seals right off the shore. Sandy with sea cliffs right behind it. Despite the name, we didn't see any real dunes.

    Cunha's is a great place to buy specialty foods, especially treats made in coastal California. You can get pies from Duarte's, branches of Brussels sprouts, local peas, squash, and strawberries. I like the little bags of grilled artichoke hearts.

    Bike Works is the best sort of local bike shop. They can sell you stuff, they rent out bikes, and they can tell you where the best rides are. If you're visiting coastal San Mateo County, rent a bike here and take a ride on the Coastal Trail. If you're cycling Highway One, it's a great place to know about ...

    Half Moon Bay's own coffee roaster, Outland Java moved to a secluded horse ranch just off Highway 92. After a sharp turn off of 92 drive up a narrow road lined by huge eucalyptus trees. Keep driving and take the left driveway. If an old Mercedes is parked by the small building, then Dan, the owner is in. Hours are ...
