Want to see redwood trees? A one-hour drive takes you south past Half Moon Bay and down a lovely stretch of California Highway 1 to Portola State Park. This park is a secret gem full of day-hiking in the redwood trees away from the crowds.
Plenty of excellent dining options are in the neighborhood. Just one block away you will find Beach Monkey Café, serving small batch pour over coffee and fantastic expresso drinks. You can also get your acai bowls, casual lunch and dinner available also. Plenty of taquerias in town, my favorite is called La Playa where you can get a world class margarita and amazing tacos and burritos while watching the game from their sports bar or relaxing on their outdoor patio. A few shops away from La Playa is the Devils Slide Tap Room, with over 40 beers on tap and the best Pickle Brine Chicken Sandwiches you’ll ever taste!
For a more upscale experience you don’t want to miss dining overlooking the Pacific Ocean at sunset. There are 3 amazing options here;
Puerto 27 serves Modern Peruvian Cuisine in a relaxed upscale environment, it is a 10-minute walk or 3-minute drive, perched overlooking Linda Mar State Beach. I recommend that you get there an hour or two before sunset and take one of the tables on the patio overlooking the beach. My favorite here is the Puerto Clasico Ceviche and the Pescado Macho “Whole Fish”.
Moonraker is a 20-minute coastal walk from the house or a 5-minute drive. Located in the cute Rockaway Beach area that is worth checking out for gift shopping, surfer watching, or as a place to hike along the coast from. Moonraker offers fine oceanfront dining, steaks, seafood and more. Happy hour is 4:30-6:30 every day and you won’t be able to get enough of the $1.50 oysters!
La Costanera is a 5-minute drive down highway 1 in the next town over, Montara. La Costanera serves contemporary Peruvian cuisine and has been rated with a Michelin star several times. The bar downstairs is more casual and has the same amazing views, Happy Hour is from 5-7 every day and 5-close on Tuesday!
