Redondo Beach

Forming the third point in a triangle alongside San Francisco to the north and San Jose to the east, Redondo Beach is part of a continuous string of sand beaches on Half Moon Bay that each have their own name and ambience.

One of the quieter stretches of bleached sand on the bay, Redondo Beach is still close to a variety of stores and food outlets. It’s backed by cliffs forming a dramatic bluff which is covered in wildflowers in the spring and where visitors will find the closest parking spots. From here a number of informal unsurfaced paths lead down to the beach, with shoes a safer option than flip-flops for the descent and return ascent.

At low tide a number of rocky tidal pools covered in seaweeds become visible on stretches of the beach’s length. There’s little natural shade, although this doesn’t stop dog-friendly Redondo from being a popular place to walk Fido.
