BeachExpert Tips & Helpful Hints
  • Surf Camp Pacifica offers camps and clinics for beginners to advanced surfers. Kids six to 18 and families are welcome.
  • Half Moon Bay Kayak leads trips along the coast starting from Pacifica State Beach. Kayakers must have open-water and surf-zone experience.
Surfers and kayakers flock to this sandy bay year-round, especially on weekends (a good time to avoid). Part of the draw is due to it's swimmer-friendly status—Linda Mar is the first beach south of San Francisco to welcome swimmers and watersports fanatics.
