Beautiful Santa Cruz Beaches
Looking for local Santa Cruz beaches? Recently voted one of the best American beach towns, Santa Cruz, otherwise known as “Surf City,” Santa Cruz enjoys a vast, beautiful coastline that attracts people from all over the world. Within walking distance from our Santa Cruz inn, Cowell Beach has been renowned as one of the best places to learn how to surf. If hanging ten isn’t your style but you appreciate the sport nonetheless, hop on over to Lighthouse Point just beyond Cowell Beach and watch the surfers glide over the waves. For the ultimate family friendly beach experience, head over to Seabright Beach, located over the train trestle just beyond the Boardwalk. The small surf community of Pleasure Point is nestled between Moran Lagoon and 41st Avenue, where nearly a dozen famous surf breaks have made this a hot spot for skilled surfers. For skim borders, 26th Avenue hosts the best place. Seacliff State Beach is the perfect spot for a seaside picnic, complete with barbeque grills and shaded tables on a long stretch of sand.
