About Half Moon Bay

Half Moon Bay is a coastal city in California’s San Mateo County, located about 25 miles south of San Francisco. Once a rural agricultural area for grazing of cattle, horses, and other animals, the city has since grown into a small town that maximizes its tourism potential and enjoys the benefits of its proximity to San Francisco.

The Pillar Point Harbor at the northern edge of Half Moon Bay offers a protected landing for boats, making the city a hotspot for fishing and local seafood. Fishermen sell crab and fish catches straight off their boats (at discount prices) directly to the public in Half Moon Bay’s harbor, and there are many fantastic seafood restaurants throughout the city, as well.

Moreover, the city’s vast coast is home to many excellent wedding venues to host your big day.
