Half Moon Bay may not be popular for people outside of California, but lots of Californian, beach lovers or golf lovers, really loves this place. Some avid golfers argue that Half Moon Bay golf course has better view than famous Pebble Beach.
If you have a chance to visit Half Moon Bay, visit Ritz Carton hotel. Seafood buffet is wonderful, pricey though. But you can enjoy beautiful view with a glass of beer or wine outside the Ritz Carton.
