We spent a very nice Sunday noon driving down from the Bay area, CA, to Half Moon Bay, CA.. 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.

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.
