Description

Half Moon Bay State Beach is actually four smaller beaches, with a total of two miles of sandy shore. The beach is a popular location for camping, picnicing, surfing, and surf fishing. Swimming is not recommended. Visitors enjoy a multi use, coastal trail that runs approximately 4 miles along Half Moon Bay. A short access trail leading to the beach is less than 100 yards from anywhere in the campground.
