I could sit here for hours and watch the surfers and take in some of the Capitola life. Join in and surf, bike ride or just take a stroll along the coastline for a view at one of the most beautiful places around. This last visit we even got a glimpse of a group of dolphins swimming up the soreline right along with the surfers. It was incredible! A must do!

There is limited beach at high tide, but the walking path above is always nice. A two way road was made into a one way and the extra given to a separate bike path and wide walking path. It is easy to watch the iconic surf spot while walking the path. This is much easier than West Cliff in Santa Cruz, where you have to watch out for bikes on the same path. Park at the end of 41st Avenue and walk to the Market at Pleasure Point. I walked with my elderly mother and it was not a problem.

Not much beach at high tide. Restrooms dirty and very smelly. Bring lunch. Pack your trash!! Obnoxious teenagers with potty mouths.

There are probably better vantage points to observe this area of natural iconic beauty but part of the attraction here is to be amongst the scenery of people that are either surfing or watching the surfing activity. Must see spot to get the spirit of Santa Cruz lifestyle.
