About Roosevelt Beach at Half Moon Bay State Beach in Half Moon Bay, California
Roosevelt Beach, a.k.a. Naples Beach is the northernmost beach in Half Moon Bay State Beach. The signed Roosevelt Beach parking lot is located at the end of Youngs Road off Highway 1 north of the Half Moon Bay urban center. This Youngs Road entrance is shared with another state park parking lot for Dunes Beach. Roosevelt Beach is in front of the Miramar neighborhood at the intersection of Roosevelt Boulevard and Naples Avenue. Signage discourages parking in this neighborhood, but if you can find a legal space it’s free to park here. Trails descend through dunes from the parking lot to the sandy beach. The Half Moon Bay Coastal Trail is behind the parking lot and heads north to Pillar Point, site of the famous Maverick’s surf competition, and south along the entire length of the state beach. This trail is popular for walking and bike riding. Note that swimming is dangerous in this area due to cold water temps and strong rip currents.
