Santa Cruz is the ideal California surfer's paradise, located on the northern tip of Monterey Bay. And the main beach located in front of the city's historic boardwalk is the perfect place to soak in the sun, play in the sand and splash in the sea.
You'll hear the screams of riders on the old wooden roller coaster as well as barking sea lions from the commercial wharf lined with restaurants and shops.
The beach is filled with volleyball nets, and some pretty serious action. And yet, wander just a few yards away and all you see are waves and a lighthouse in the distance. It's really pretty cool.
