Community Description

Moss Beach is one of the quaint, rural seaside communities located along the Half Moon Bay Coastside, about 30 miles south of San Francisco, and only an hour's drive from virtually anywhere in the Bay Area. Due to the marine air currents off the Pacific Ocean, Moss Beach experiences above average fog levels, but also superior ambient air quality. Local activities include two award-winning golf courses and a driving range, sport fishing, whale watching, and horseback riding on the beach. Situated along the coast of Moss Beach is the Fitzgerald Marine Reserve, a California designated area of Special Biological Significance.
