Located six minutes north of the Inn at Mavericks off of Highway 1 (Cabrillo Highway), you'll find Montara State Beach. Many visitors like to explore the tide pools or surf while enjoying this lovely beach framed by spectacular rugged mountains. Montara Mountain is part of Montara State Beach, and is the only undisturbed Coastal Mountain Habitat found for over 100 miles of the coastline.

Montara State Beach is one of the most popular beaches along the Half Moon Bay coast due to its rugged beauty and cleanliness. Dog owners are allowed to bring their canine companions to the beach as long as they are kept on a leash.

Looking for a spot to enjoy dinner and a view? La Costanera, a contemporary Peruvian restaurant, is located on Montara Beach overlooking the ocean.
