Pescadero lies just inland from Highway 1, between the towns of Half Moon Bay and Santa Cruz, and fifty miles south of San Francisco. The drive to Pescadero from the city along the famed Coast Highway is magnificent as it hugs the mountains on one side and gives way to rocky cliffs that drop down to the ocean on the other side. As you near the small community of Pescadero, you will see the historic Pigeon Point Lighthouse perched on a cliff n the distance. Now a State Park, the lighthouse stands as it has since 1872, guiding mariners to safety. One of the tallest lighthouses in the country, the grounds are open to the public and it offers fantastic photography opportunities. Another nearby attraction from Pescadero is the Ano Nuevo State Reserve where you can take a 3-mile round trip hike to the breeding grounds of the massive elephant seals. You must call ahead for reservations for this hike. Pescadero State Park, Butano State Park, and Bean Hollow State Park offer more opportunities for outdoor recreation. Pescadero is a picturesque village, surrounded by rich farmland and makes a wonderful countryside retreat, away from the crowds of the cities.
