Montara State Beach

Montara State Beach

This beach is a popular location for visitors who enjoy exploring the beach tide pools or surf fishing. It is bounded by low hills to the north and south. Restaurants and grocery stores are nearby. The water is clear, the surf is strong and the sand is nice and soft. This is dog heaven!

There are two beach access points from the bluff area. One access is across from Second Street, immediately south of the Outrigger restaurant. The second access point is about a half-mile north on the ocean side of Highway 1 and the last few steps have been washed out. The paths down to the beach are steep.

Remember that dogs must be leashed at all times.

Help us keep this beach beautiful and dog-friendly:
• Always follow the posted rules
• Respect natural marine life and habitats
• Be aware of tides and currents
• Pack in and pack out, leaving only paw prints
