“Where friends meet” since 1894 A scenic drive down the Pacific Coast Highway brings you to Pescadero. "Duarte’s Tavern offers American country cooking, spiced by the Portugese roots of the Duarte family. They cook local fish depending on the week’s catch and a tavern menu of simple dishes, nothing fancy. Almost all of their vegetables and fruits are from the restaurant garden or grown locally. They feature wines from the Santa Cruz mountains, and their fully stocked bar makes a mean Bloody Mary."

Parks & Nature
"Located twenty-five miles south of Half Moon Bay, the park’s remote sandy shores play host to the mating, birthing, and molting seasons of the two-ton elephant seals that were nearly driven extinct in the 19th century. While the seals are clearly the stars, the park itself inspires with over 4,000 acres of diverse, mesmerizing landscapes—from a freshwater marsh to towering sand dunes—and a rich cultural history that includes historic structures from a bygone dairy farm."

"The biggest surf break of the Half Moon Bay area lures surfers from around the globe. Just off the coast, a short distance outside Pillar Point Harbor, Mavericks looms large on the horizon in winter months (November through March), when the storm swell pushes the surf into some of the biggest waves in the world. Originally named for the canine companion of a local surfer, Mavericks is better known to the world through Jeff Clark, a Half Moon Bay native who has surfed the break for more than 40 years."

"At Purisima Creek Redwoods Preserve, historical logging roads have been repurposed as hiking trails where the scent of pine trees is strong and cell service is gloriously weak. Stretch your legs along the North Ridge Trail which traverses the fern-lined slopes of the Santa Cruz Mountains before dipping into the lush, creek-filled redwood groves of Purisima Creek Canyon."

Imagine a beach made entirely of little pebbles, a lot of them agates, that feel amazing to the touch. Take off your shoes and run your bare feet and hands through these pebbles for a free spa treatment. This leaves your skin feeling so incredibly soft! Crazy holey tafoni sandstone formations are also on this beach. You just can't believe it until you see it. This beach is immediately off Highway 1 near the Pescadero turnoff, accessible by a staircase, and has a vault toilet.
