Pet-friendly Activities & Lodging


The pet-friendly Coastside encourages you to bring your dog!

Half Moon Bay is the perfect place for dog owners and their four-legged friends. With such a temperate climate all year round, the activities you can enjoy with Fido are plentiful.

Spend the afternoon walking along the Bluff Top Trail while reveling in breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean. From the parking lot at Pillar Point your dog can be off leash out to the tidepools off Mavericks or on leash to the right crossing over the bluffs to the Moss Beach Distillery. Another nice spot is Quarry Park, a forty acre park in El Granada.

Take Fido out on the water with Half Moon Bay Kayak Company or set out on a charter boat with Huli Cat Sportfishing. The restaurants in Half Moon Bay are legendary, and lucky for you, you don’t have to pass up on these great dining experiences because of your pet. Instead, give your dog a bone when you eat at dog-friendly restaurants at Half Moon Bay Brewing Company, Moss Beach Distillery, & Seville Tapa Restaurant.

Let’s not forget the great accommodations. Half Moon Bay has a wide selection of pup-friendly inns and hotels, including Half Moon Bay Inn, Inn at Mavericks and Coastside Inn. The Inn at Mavericksoffers doggie beds, goodie bags, & treats.

South of Half Moon Bay is dog park where you dog can run free. Turn off Highway 1 at Cameron’s Inn and Restaurant and after a short drive the park is on your right.

With so much to offer for your furry friends, it’s clear that Half Moon Bay is a pooch’s paradise.
