Situated about halfway between San Francisco and Half Moon Bay (approximately 15 minutes from each), Pacifica is a coastal jewel with its six-mile stretch of beaches and rolling hillside vistas. Well-known by surfers, Linda Mar Beach and Rockaway Beach are popular destinations for the wave riders. Fishing, mountain biking, hiking and touring historical sites are also big attractions. The Pacific Coast Fog Festival in late September showcases a profusion of artists, performances, contests, displays, vendors and activities.
Shopping, dining, entertainment, events and activities for all ages plus a natural beauty are all features of this serene seaside gem. Pacifica is home to the world-class Shelldance Orchid Gardens and the Sharp Park Golf Course, designed by Alister MacKenzie. The temperate climate ranges 15-20 degrees cooler than the central coast, and locals and visitors alike enjoy nature’s air conditioning.
Rich in cultural heritage and a bohemian charm, Pacifica is definitely a place to explore, enjoy and perhaps to reside.
