Surfers, dolphins, happy dogs... what more could you ask? We saw a group of 10 to 12 dolphins going slowly up and down the coast, almost right at the break. So close. The beach overall was not all crowded, and very nice - although it...More

Such a great location to get close to the ocean and take in the fresh air of the Pacific Ocean. Great little restaurant located at Miramar Beach. Located north of half moon bay off the highway 1.

Great beach with LOTS of friendly playing dogs. Swimming was safe (and cold). It's right at the Miramar not steep so walking was easy while carrying chairs and towels.

The trail along Miramar goes from Kelly Street out to Miramar and to Princeton Harbor. Great 5 mile pluse paved path right along the water's edge. Fantastic. I have been going here since 1969 and it's is just great.

I love Half Moon Bay! Getting there from the East Bay is more than a notion but I exhale every time I drive over. Miramar Beach has seen quite a bit of erosion leaving beach access somewhat limited. In addition, it's a dog beach and...More

Very quite, clean and nice place to be. I had my dog with me, thinking they would let him on the beach. But, when I got there, saw "No Dogs" posts all around. Not sure if the data on the Half Moon Bay website is...More

Sorry I can't answer that question for you. I might suggest that you contact the Chamber of Commerce in Half Moon Bay. They may have a suggestion. Good Luck.
