About Rockaway Beach in Pacifica, California

Rockaway Beach is a popular brown sand beach in Pacifica, California. Right next to the beach there are restaurants and hotels so you can spend the day or even a weekend here.

Hiking trails begin at Rockaway Beach and explore Mori Point north of the beach and a rocky point south of the beach. A paved bike path runs north and south behind the beach for walking, running, and biking. Surfers come and go through the waves at Rockaway and fishermen will use the shoreline when it’s not too crowded to cast a line into the surf.

To get here turn onto Rockaway Beach Avenue from Highway 1 in Pacifica then turn immediately onto Old Country Road which ends at a parking lot. This southern lot provides access to the widest area of the beach even though at high tide much of it will be wet. North of the hotels there is another beach parking lot at the end of San Marlo Way. This northern part of the beach has even less sand.
