Pescadero is one of those places you just have to see to believe. For one, it’s not too far from San Francisco, but couldn’t be any more different. Pescadero is a sleepy, farming community quietly nestled on the coastline. And in just around four square miles of land, it’s about as small-town as it gets.
Despite it’s small size, Pescadero is a favorite for visitors passing through from Half Moon Bay to Santa Cruz. The town has it’s own state beach for fishing, tidepooling, and more, in addition to a marsh rich with native wildlife. Camping, hiking, and mountain biking are all premier attractions as well, with Pescadero hosting an annual bicycle race each summer.
With ranches and farms nearly overlooking the ocean, Pescadero is northern California’s version of countryside living. Homes for sale include beautifully charming cottages set along a rural backdrop of large, aged trees with stunning coastal views. Residents also have the advantage of frequenting local favorites such as Duarte’s Tavern for warm soup on chilly days, Arcangeli grocery Co./Norm’s Market for its famous garlic herb artichoke bread, and a weekly farmer’s market for fresh ingredients.
Because there’s so much to explore in such a small area, Pescadero tends to draw in weekenders for romance, camping, antiquing and more. But this all adds to the appeal of a town that remains happily locked in a century long passed.
