About Mirada Surf Beach in Half Moon Bay, California

Mirada Surf Beach is below a park known as Mirada Surf West just north of the Half Moon Bay community of Miramar. The beachfront road in Miramar used to continue north along the shore here but the ocean took it away long ago. Back then the beach was known as Vallejo Beach. The bluff behind the beach is very steep and crumbly so the best access to the sand below the park is from Magellan Avenue in Miramar. Surfer’s Beach is next to the Pillar Point Harbor at the north end of this beach. A section of the California Coastal Trail passes through Mirada Surf West for walkers, bicyclists, equestrians, and dog walkers to share. Across Highway 1 is a small dirt parking lot for another San Mateo County park called Mirada Surf East which has hiking trails that lead uphill to Quarry Park.
