Montara State Beach is located at the foot of Montara Mountain, which is part of the Santa Cruz mountain range and is home to the region’s only undeveloped coastal mountain habitat. Owner-supervised dogs are permitted within the beach on leashes with lengths of no more than six feet. The beach serves as a popular spot for surf fishing and tide pool exploration, though collecting of shells and other items is strictly prohibited. Though camping is not permitted on the beach, the nearby lighthouse on Point Montara offers overnight accommodations in a historic restored facility, and several state park campgrounds are also within close range. Visitors should note that beach fires, fireworks, and drones are also prohibited within beach limits.
