Pescadero and Pescadero Beach

Historic Pescadero
The historic town of Pescadero is nestled between redwood forests and the Pacific Ocean, about 15 miles south of Half Moon Bay — between San Francisco and Santa Cruz.

Close to San Francisco, the Peninsula and South Bay, Pescadero is a popular retreat for getaway weekends, family camping and fun day trips.

During your visit to Pescadero, be sure to stop by Norm's Market (Arcangeli Grocery Co) and pick up a loaf or two of their famous Garlic Herb Sourdough and Artichoke French Breads — both are soooooo good!

Fun Outdoor Activities
Pescadero and its surrounding areas offer miles of hiking and biking trails, State Parks, Beaches, an Elephant Seal Habitat, and a Nature Reserve — it's a fun family destination.
