beach and the scenic walking path
Francis State Beach is located just South of the
intersection of Highway 92 and Hwy 1 in Half Moon Bay. Look for
signs to Kelly Ave and Francis Beach (see address

Beach Tips Check Half Moon Bay weather before you
leave for the day. The fog can be very cold. Bring layers and leave
them in the car if you don't need them. Thick fog can roll in very
fast, at any time.
Get to the beach early, especially on weekends. The parking lot
fills up fast, particularly on warm, sunny days.
The State Beach is a wonderful place to go for a picnic.
