“Beauty abounds”
Reviewed 14 June 2013

Nice parking lot which you need to feed the meters. Benches along the cliff if one does not want to feel sand in their toes. Easy access to nice sand beach. Porta potties (or Peet's coffee is a few miles up the highway).

“Beautiful!!”
Reviewed 9 March 2013

The beach was pretty! It's sandy, but there are quite a few rocks/shells to find. Lots of horses ride along it. Not a swimming beach, just a "Wow!" beach.

“Beautiful! But cold..”
Reviewed 13 February 2012

We visited Poplar Beach instead of Half Moon Bay State Beach, and it was a breath-taking sight! :) But it was a cold day, so my husband and I weren't able to complete the whole beach.. still, it's a lovely place for photos!
