The coastal village of Princeton-by-the-sea is located only 5 miles north of the town of Half Moon Bay and is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy a great vacation. The village is surrounded by Pillar Point Harbor, where visitors can rent kayaks and paddle boards and enjoy a day on Half Moon Bay. The local beaches in the area offer stunning views of the rugged coastline and attract thousands of visitors every year during the world famous “Mavericks” surfing competition. Many of the beaches are pet friendly and are great places to take your dog for the day. If you visit Princeton-By-the-Sea, dine locally and you’ll taste some of the best seafood in the area caught fresh from the Bay.
A group of guests staying at Inn at Mavericks for their wedding were pleasantly escorted to their ceremony in the, “Golden Mean Snail Car.” This unique automobile is an 11 foot work of art transformed from a 1966 VW bug into — we’re not joking — a snail car! Creators of this masterpiece are husband and wife team Jon Sarriugarte and Kyrsten Mate.
The farmlands that surround Half Moon Bay contain some of the best soil in California, add to this the gentle ocean climate with its morning fog and brilliant sun-soaked afternoons and you have one of the premiere growing locations in the US. Perhaps, we need to add into this equation the love and passion of a community dedicated to the practices of organic farming.
