“Great views from the car, and fun for the pooch”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

with the exeption of surfer's beach on highway one, Miramar beach is the only beach in half moon bay that you can actually drive by and see from your car if just passing through and need a view, etc. Mirada road runs along the bluff overlooking Miramar beach for less than a half a mile, but boasts some great sunsets and views looking south of the bay, and north to the harbor. Overall the quality of the beach is good, exception being when the tide is high some of the beach can be eliminated as the surf reaches the made made rip rap. The north side of Miramar beach is the only designated off leash Dog beach in half moon bay. Two other attractions are the Miramar beach restaurant which has great views, outdoor seating and a great bar. Live music on the weekends, although a great place for drinks and appetizers around the firepit, the food overall is good, but the view is better. Miramar beach also has a new public restroom facility which is on magellan street near the Miramar restaurant . Parking is also free, but can be scarce on weekends.

“A small area to park, a peaceful spot”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

It's almost a spiritual experience at this beach. Very soothing and you can see crabs by the rocks and find all kinds of seashells. Sometimes you will see the sealions gathering as well. Great place to stop off at and relax and take some pics.

“Great Beach with lovely sand, albeit windy.”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

Sand and surf. can't get better than that, except it was windy the day we were there, even though it was reasonably warm.
The beaches along this stretch of the coastline tend to be good with sand in most cases and jagged rocks in a few spots.
A great coastal drive with breathtaking views over head lands.

Whether you enjoy just a walk on the beach or want to sit down and watch all the wildlife, this beach is what you are looking for. It is quiet and less populated then others.

Wonderful beach location. Easy access, clean and a great time for all. Best dog beach around for sure! Lots of shells too...if you kids like that.
