Framed by dramatic coastal rock formations, Montara is a beachfront community on California’s stunning central coastline. Just 20 miles south of San Francisco and 50 miles north of Santa Cruz, Montara’s weather is pleasant nearly the entire year. Originally established in 1875 as a fog station, the Point Montara Lighthouse is still standing today and serves as a hostel for visitors looking to explore all the natural wonders of Montara. Mt. Montara also offers hikers, bike riders and horseback riders some of California’s most breathtaking views while being close enough to Half Moon Bay to explore a neighboring vibrant coastal town.
