There were big waves and lots of surfers! I had never seen surfers, so this was a great experience, and a coffee place closeby :)

Wonderful place to sit ( bring something thick and cushie to sit on) and watch all the people, children, animals and the breath-taking water. The beach is often still wet from morning tides so bring something waterproof to sit on and some type of wrap for the wind off the water. You will see many different sights in one short... More

Nice sand, easy access, a bluff blocks some of the wind. Love this place. Love to have drinks at the restaurant there.

It is a fun walk, and there are surfers, lots of dogs having fun, what's not to like? It was an easy walk from the Marina in El Granada.

It was a rather cloudy day; but all the the drive was a very nice and scenic one with the energizing smell of the Eucalyptus trees for part. of the lovely drive. Usually, on a sunny Sunday, such a drive is... More

It's a great place to have a glass of wine and some appetizer. We enjoyed the view as the whole restaurant overlooks the beach. They also have a guest pianist which makes your dinning experience really cozy and romantic. Food is average but the wine list is reasonable. I would go back again.

At Miramar Beach there is a beach front restaurant here called Miramar Beach Restaurant. The restaurant has nice views of the beach. As such, we like to go walking before or after at the beach. It is a sandy beach. Traffic in this area can be a bit congested. As such, when not dining at the restaurant, we tend to... More

A local in Half Moon Bay recommended this restaurant as we would probably not have picked it ourselves. It's literally across a narrow beachfront road at the end of a neighborhood of beach condos. The wall facing the ocean are full glass windows that offer prime seating. We started out at the wood-topped bar where we thought we were back... More

Liked the outdoor seating. The food was fresh and the service was good. We had children with us and it was relaxed and the outdoor seating was good for children.
