Along Highway 1 and just up the road from Half Moon Bay, is where you’ll find the marine haven of Moss Beach.
Moss Beach is particularly famous for the Fitzgerald Marine Reserve where students, ecologists, tourists and residents explore natural wildlife through tidepooling and sightseeing. At low tide, you can witness some of the most extraordinary creatures of the Pacific from sea stars to anemones. The reserve is also home to many over the water animals including a unique array of birds.
The scenery, like many coastal northern California towns, is striking. The usual blanket of fog is as much apart of this town as the people and wildlife are. But what the climate also provides is exceptional air quality that visitors and residents – especially those from more polluted cities – have come to enjoy.
Homes for sale in Moss Beach are naturally enhanced by the beauty of this location. Trees and shoreline views extend across the town making it one of the most unique places to live in the Bay Area. Homes further inland continue to capture the old-time charm offering residents and potential home owners a welcomed escape from the big city. Historical restaurants, such as the Moss Beach Distillery, and various lodging keep the town alive with weekenders as well.
Students share schools with Half Moon Bay, Montara, and others as part of the Cabrillo Unified School District. And workers enjoy the convenience of commuting into neighboring Bay Area cities with San Francisco and Silicon Valley so close by.
