The Ritz Hotel California

Map of The Ritz-Carlton, Half Moon BayLocated on a cliff overlooking the bay, The Ritz-Carlton Half Moon Bay is incredibly beautiful. Apart from stunning views, the immediate area offers a variety of outdoor activities, like surfing, swimming, and hiking. Although not much else is within walking distance, plenty of wining and dining options are just a short drive away in downtown Half Moon Bay.

Situated on the Peninsula in the Bay Area, Half Moon Bay is a quaint, rural seaside town about half an hour south of San Francisco. It is the oldest settlement in San Mateo County, and dates back to the early 1800s. Lacking a decent public transit system (like much of California), a rental car will probably come in handy when visiting this area. Nearly all of the popular beaches are directly off of Highway 1 (the Pacific Coast Highway). Although the hotel is lacking in the food and drink scene, a few restaurants and bars can be found nearby - notably Sam's Chowder House and, of course, local wineries.
