Photograph - Digital Photography
Beach Play is one of favorite things to do in Santa Cruz County . This photo is one of the more colorful beach resorts on the sand at Capitola Beach. The beach is over 135 years old. It has grown from a campground to one of the more popular beach towns in Northern California. It is a small beach town on the Pacific tucked away a few miles south of Santa Cruz off highway One. It is located on the north end of Monterey Bay about a 2 hour drive south of San Francisco. This charming coastal village is small, and parking can be tight, but it is full of little quaint shops and local restaurants that give this beach town a wonderful character. The town has a nearby pier, a small family friendly beach, and small rolling waves. Capitola is a perfect place for a cozy weekend getaway. The weather is mild throughout the year, with cool and wet winters, fog in the summer mornings, and mostly sunny and dry summers. Besides soaking up the sunshine on the Pacific, there are numerous water sports available. This is a family friendly beach town with water sports like Sailing, Paddle boarding, Swimming, as well as Surfing. If you drive a few miles north to Santa Cruz, you can find 11 world class surf breaks, including Pleasure Point, and Steamer Lane. Santa Cruz is a wonderful beach community, known for great beaches, the boardwalk, its incredible coastline, and Redwood forests. The wharf is known for various sea creatures, like seals, an occasional dolphin, and numerous sea birds. All in all, a wonderful time awaits you, whether taking long walks in the sand, running, bicycling, photographing, surfing, or just chilling in this awesome area in northern California. In summer, I Love to venture to the Pacific coast and catch up on water play, and relaxation. Capitola Beach, just south of Santa Cruz is a Fave Spot.
