The Half Moon Bay Coastside offers a wealth of ecotourism activities. Our California Coastside has some of the richest marine reserves and wetlands on the California, small working farms where you can explore a barnyard and dine on farm-fresh organic produce. There is a unique shopping district on historic Main Street, lodging accommodations for the traveler, many tidepooling areas, fishing for wild salmon or albacore tuna, and much more.
