Pillar Point Marsh Beach and Maverick's Beach let you enjoy Half Moon Bay while your best friend has tons of fun.

Pillar Point Marsh Beach is one of the few beaches in the Half Moon Bay area where you can take your dog, and it’s a wonderful beach. You can take a short walk to the Maverick’s Beach that hosts annual surfing competition. The best way to get to the beach is from a small parking lot that might be tricky to find without directions. Dogs officially have to be on-leash but well behaving dogs often run free … do so at your own risk. This is also a great place to take your kid along with your dog to find sea shells and explore tide pools.
