Gray whale cove beach access closed. Great views on the loop trail above. Good place to look for whales when in season. Use your own GPS to get there, the Trip Advisor map has it in the wrong place, it is not in HMB but just north of Montana.

This is a truly beautiful beach and one of those that we stopped at on our tour of the area. It was a little hazy on our visit but we could see that on a sunny day this place is magnificent.

We were in Half Moon Bay on one of the hottest days of the year. People were actually in swim suits way into the early evening. People were swimming. It was more like a Southern California beach scene. This is not the norm, as often one needs a jacket here. It was a delight to be here on such a nice day Of course many others were there too enjoying the stellar views of the Pacific Ocean and the nice sandy beach.

I am very disappointed to see that over the years my local hang outs have gotten riddled with trash and plastics. Not a single person offering to pick up a few pieces of trash here and there - everyone visiting on this day was completely oblivious it seemed. I am disheartened that this beach is becoming a cesspool of waste. We found trash right on the beach ranging from bottles, lost shoes, fully closed bags of trash and snack wrappers.
