Visited here for the first time recently. My friend and I decided to do an "urban walk" around Capitola, 7 miles, so spent some time around the beach area and the town. We had gorgeous views during our walk and I enjoyed seeing the beach, the colorfully decorated beach houses right near the sand, the pier and the pretty beach area. This looks like a great place to take a family for a beach outing. Everyone seemed to be having a fun time the day we were there. The area has a Mediterranean look to it and reminds me more of a Southern California town than a Northern California beach town. There were a number of shops and restaurants located near the beach. This is a great beach town to visit which I would highly recommend!

Fun place to shop around and grab something to eat on the water. Wednesday nights in the summer they have a free concert at the Esplanade on the beach which is fun.

This is a great place to spend a day! You can rent a chair for $6.00 and sit in a not too crowed beach for a great day!

Very crowded place, we did not spent too much time there.
As we arrived in the afternoon, the place was also quite dirty.
