Owner description: Artsy, secluded spot close by, but away from the crowds of Santa Cruz

Being over 65, we found that having plenty of seating looking toward the ocean was very nice. It was also nice to be near many shops and even a coffee room. I should like to say that we ate at Zelda's and loved it. They are not listed and we don't know why.

Capitola Beach reminds me of many beach villages along the Med. The colorful rental apartment, the ice cream shop, the restaurants along the esplanade make me feel like I am along the Riviera.

If you like popular places this is not for you.
During low tide in the winter it is rather easy to walk south along this beach and see fossil impressions in the rising cliffs, not many people are aware of this.
