About Surfers Beach in Half Moon Bay, California
Surfers Beach is just outside the rock jetty that protects Pillar Point Harbor across Highway 1 from the community of El Granada north of Half Moon Bay. This location under the right conditions creates a nice surf break as it rolls in along the jetty. At high tide the water level is high enough that the waves crash right on the rocks that protect the highway from erosion. At low tide, there is enough sand exposed to call this a beach. Just inside the jetty is a sandy beach called Harbor Beach that is protected from the waves and isn’t under water at high tide. Restrooms and a restaurant are available next to the Pillar Point Harbor boat launch on the other side of the jetty. The multi-use California Coastal Trail is right behind the beach for walkers, joggers, bikers, and others to enjoy. Parking for Surfer’s Beach is available next to the Pillar Point RV Park, along the highway shoulder, and across the highway on Obispo Road in El Granada.
