About Half Moon Bay
Half Moon Bay is located on the Pacific Coast between forested hills and some of the most beautiful coastlines that California has to offer. It is approximately 28 miles south of San Francisco and is an idyllic enclave and truly the place to spend some time away from the big city. Horseback ride along a scenic beach, play golf on a spectacular course overlooking the ocean or browse through the numerous shops and art galleries in the historic section.
With its historic downtown, shops, art galleries, restaurants, accommodations, beaches, parks, golf courses, nurseries, and farms, it’s a wonderful local and regional destination. The Pumpkin Festival held in October draws people from around the country to enjoy its panoramic vistas, fine cuisine, arts, crafts and genuine hospitality.
