Imagine hearing the distant sounds of crashing waves and barking seals as you step outside of your home. The smell of salt water flowing over the hillside, throughout the harbor, and onto your doorstep. The light dripping of fog that will stay until the sun burns it away. Driving to town, you watch as a small airplane takes off and flies over the Pillar Point Harbor, where a massive old-time ship has come for a visit. Surfers sit on the water at the beach, just hoping that some wave might come take them for a ride.
The sounds, smells, and sights of Moss Beach are certainly wonderful. With just over a population of 3,000, Moss Beach has the cozy feel of home wherever you wander, and yet it’s so close to Silicon Valley and San Francisco that you can commute effortlessly.
You can count on a glorious time when you come to Moss Beach, California. This friendly community is home to the Fitzgerald Marine Reserve. A wonderful safe haven for the California Harbor Seal and many other sea creatures that can be found in the tide pools there. Pack a lunch and head over to discover the small creatures that live just off our shore.
If you enjoy great places to eat, come join us for a great meal at the Historic Moss Beach Distillery. Originally established in 1927 as a speakeasy, it was later converted into a successful restaurant after the repeal of the Prohibition in 1933, and has been serving great food ever since. But that’s not all there is to this resaurant: the legend of the Blue Lady has lead many paranormal seekers to its doors. Her story revolves around a mysterious murder that is said to have occurred on the bluffs near the restaurant. The victim still remains, reminding people of her existence with swaying chandeliers, laughter, and occasional haunting appearances. With great food and this legend to entertain, the Distillery is a place you want to check out.
