    We went on a Saturday we arrived at 1:00 or so and it was pretty crowded. It was an ok place but I think it would be better on a day a little less packed.

    Our favorite family surf spot. Good for beginners up to intermediate. Get in and out before 10 for the best time. Watch out for beach break, though.

    Check the local weather before making the trip! Pacifica can get pretty foggy even when it's nice in SF.

    Great to stop and pee at the Taco Bell on Pacific beach. Go thru double doors and then head outside to the left.

    If you do have a car, keep driving down the 1 to Pacifica. This beach has a Taco Bell on it (with patio). Get a Crunchwrap Supreme and take in all the Cali goodness.

    Good beach for surfing. If you're a beginner, the south end of the beach offers a chance to learn to surf. The north end of the beach is usually bigger and more surfable on good days.

    Close out fast if the tide is too low. Come here when it's mid to high tide, more ridable. Parking 3 bucks for 4 hours. Beginners stay south. Intermediate to advance surf more toward north.
