Once known as Spanishtown, Half Moon Bay is the oldest settlement in San Mateo County, California. Dating back to the Spanish land grants of the 1840s, the intriguing history of this romantic seaside town includes a prominent role in the foundation of the Ocean Shore Railroad and colorful exploits of 1930s-era rumrunners.
Incorporated in 1959, modern Half Moon Bay offers visitors an endless variety of activities. Half Moon Bay consists of five distinct regions that combine to make it a diverse and unique destination experience. The Coastal Region, where the resort resides, offers world class beaches, horseback riding and oceanfront dining. Historic Main Street offers dining, art and shopping. The Pumpkin Region (Half Moon Bay is home to one of the largest pumpkin festivals in the world occurring every October) offers organic fruit stands, wine tasting, farms and glass blowing. The Redwood Region allows our guests to hike, bike or horseback ride amongst the awe-inspiring Northern California scenery. Finally, the Santa Cruz Mountain Region features more than 70 wineries offering wine tasting right in our backyard.
