Pacifica State Beach
5000 Pacific Coast Hwy, Pacifica, CA 94044, USA
Relax at Linda Mar BeachAs the fog burns off during the midday sun, crowds gather and surfers dot the shores. A short but steep hike to the north of Linda Mar offers views of the stunning coastline and access to neighboring Rockaway. The beach is located in a crescent cove, protecting it from larger surf and making the waves gentler, which is best for beginning surfers. There is a gradient of wave size, from large at the north end to small on the south end. It’s best to check a local surf cam, like Surfline.
