Restaurant is across the street from the ocean; Beautiful views and spectacular sunsets. Inside or outside dining; Good food with music on the weekends; A bit pricey for lunch; Great happy hour prices and food and $19.99 3-course dinner specials on Thursday nights.

We loved stopping at this local beach which was incredibly accessible right off Highway 1. Free half hour parking (make sure to get a validation ticket from the machine), clean bathrooms with outdoor shower to get the sand and salt off before you get back in the car, and a wide beach which is perfect for families. The sand is... More

Free parking close to the beach (from Cabrillo Highway take Medio Ave), relatively clean public toilet and a not too crowded beach. Dogs can run unleashed and also allowed to swim in the ocean. Unfortunately, along the promenade there were only a few garbage cans.

with the exeption of surfer's beach on highway one, Miramar beach is the only beach in half moon bay that you can actually drive by and see from your car if just passing through and need a view, etc. Mirada road runs along the bluff overlooking Miramar beach for less than a half a mile, but boasts some great sunsets...

It's almost a spiritual experience at this beach. Very soothing and you can see crabs by the rocks and find all kinds of seashells. Sometimes you will see the sealions gathering as well. Great place to stop off at and relax and take some pics.

Sand and surf. can't get better than that, except it was windy the day we were there, even though it was reasonably warm. The beaches along this stretch of the coastline tend to be good with sand in most cases and jagged rocks in a few spots. A great coastal drive with breathtaking views over head lands.

Whether you enjoy just a walk on the beach or want to sit down and watch all the wildlife, this beach is what you are looking for. It is quiet and less populated then others.

Wonderful beach location. Easy access, clean and a great time for all. Best dog beach around for sure! Lots of shells too...if you kids like that.

Average dining in old restaurant with a historic building. Oysters in half shell was good but the rest of the dining experience left us wanting. Service was great.

I have been coming to the Miramar Beach Restaurant for over 5 years and have never had a bad meal or experience. The food is outstanding and the staff are always nice. If the weather is half way decent try dinning on the patio.
