Sandy Beach, Cliffs, Fishing, and Tide Pools

Family Time Off The Beaten Path

Pescadero Creek Rd
Pescadero, CA 94060


With its beautiful coral formations, crashing waves, and tide pools, Pescadero is an exciting day at the beach. Located between Half Moon Bay and Santa Cruz, this beach town is a great place to take the family for a sunny day at the beach, and then head to one of its many relaxed restaurants and shops on the main strip. Check out the lighthouse and wildlife preserve if you want to set goals for yourself--if not, just relax and enjoy a day at the beach.
