About Sand City

Sand City’s name says it all. This tiny community includes a profusion of sand, including the highest dunes found along the state’s Central Coast. Overlooking beautiful Monterey Bay, this city is a popular spot for paragliding. Sand City Beach is also known for its strong winds, making even the summer months a tad chilly at times. With about a mile and a half of ocean, Sand City is virtually surrounded by much larger cities, like Seaside.
