Sightseeing
Visitors can enjoy magnificent views of the dramatic Pacific coastline while taking an invigorating walk along the Coastside Trail, also known as the California Coastal Trail. This scenic oceanfront trail extends from Seymour Bridge in Half Moon Bay to Pillar Point Harbor, totaling a little less than five miles in length. Most of its length is an asphalt-paved trail that runs along the path that used to be the route for the Ocean Shore Railroad. As a result, it is wheelchair accessible and also a popular place for in-line skating and cyclists, as well as those on foot. The Pillar Point Harbor fishing pier is in the neighboring community of Princeton-by-the-Sea. This harbor is also the departure point for whale-watching tours during whale migration season. Visitors will also find several excellent seafood restaurants in this area.

Food scene
Across Capistrano Rd from Johnson Pier is the relatively new Oceano Hotel & Retail complex. It is beautiful architecturally but the stores have not been all that successful sofar. Still it’s a generally pleasant commercial area to walk though not nearly so stunning as the nature you can see nearby. The retail mall called the Shoppes at Harbor Village is a “village street” covered by a greenhouse roof. There is a bookstore and a few other small shops to quickly browse through. Mezza Luna Caffe, in front of the mall, is a cute little place with gelato, pastries, snacks, and coffee.

Sheltered by wooded rolling hills, the cozy seaside community of Half Moon Bay is an unpretentious small town with a friendly attitude. Despite being so close to San Francisco, the town feels much farther away because it's only accessible by a winding two-lane country road. Often blanketed in misty fog, the hillsides sloping down to the Pacific Ocean are covered with fragrant eucalyptus trees and a patchwork of farms, ranches, and flower nurseries. The seasonal bounty of artichokes, carrots, corn, strawberries, green beans, and pumpkins delight shoppers at the weekly farmers market. Produce stands also line Route 92, the main road into town. Half Moon Bay is a popular weekend getaway from San Francisco with interesting shops, restaurants, and quaint bed-and-breakfasts, and makes a wonderful stop on a Northern California coastal itinerary. Beautiful beaches, dramatic nature sites, and awe-inspiring ocean scenery set a glorious backdrop for outdoor activities like hiking, fishing, horseback riding, birding, golfing, and (when the sun is out) sunbathing. Plan your trip with our list of the top things to do in Half Moon Bay.
