The Historic Coastside
84
The Coastside comfortably takes its place between the dramatic,
green coastal mountain range to the east, and the powerful bluegreen Pacific to the west. Because it is somewhat isolated from its
major metropolitan neighbors, the area has not changed as much as it
might have over the years.
Dating back to the 1840s, the community that is today called Half
Moon Bay is the oldest community in San Mateo County. Cabrillo
Highway (California Rt. 1) along the coast, and San Mateo Road
(Highway 92) over the mountains follow closely the earliest trails
of the original Coastanoan Indians, who lived here for thousands of
years. The Coastside was the first place on the peninsula visited by
Spanish military explorer Gaspar de Portola, with his accompanying
missionary, Father Juan Crespi in 1769.
The earliest settlers of the Coastside were the recipients of Mexican
land grants – handed out to prominent and worthy military and
civil leaders by the government. Five of those land grants make up
what is referred to as the Coastside today. As the first commercial
developments were primarily established by Mexican pioneers, and
others from Spanish-speaking cultures, the village was first dubbed
“Spanishtown” by its first Anglo visitors and settlers. The place was
eventually renamed “Half Moon Bay,” which was the name earlier
given to the beautiful, crescent shaped harbor near today’s El
Granada.
In the later 1800’s and on into the 1900’s, the areas character was
altered by the arrival of the Americans, Italians, Portuguese, Pacific
Islanders, Chinese, and a host of cultures. Half Moon Bay became
a thriving community. Traces of that past remain very visible in the
many historic buildings on downtown’s Main, Purissima, Johnston
Streets, and others (See “The Treasures of Half Moon Bay,” A small
souvenir guide book found in many stores and shops around town).
Stage coaches ran their routes from San Mateo to Half Moon Bay, and
then on south to the little towns of Purissima, Lobitos, San Gregorio
and Pescadero. North of town were the wharves of Miramar (known
then as Aimesport Landing) and at Pillar Point – for shipping back
and forth from San Francisco.
The 20th century brought more great changes – especially the
construction of the Ocean Shore Railroad. From 1907 through
1920 the railroad hugged the shoreline from San Francisco to Tunitas
Glen – just south of town. Passengers marveled at the stretches
of sandy beaches, perfect for picnics, kite flying, horseback riding
and exploring. The towns of Montara, Moss Beach, El Granada, –
and other neighborhoods were laid out by developers anticipating
the great influx of San Franciscans. Due to financial problems, the
advent of the horseless carriage, and less than expected markets, the
railroad failed. Though growth was slowed, the railroad did leave the
subdivisions that were the seed of modern suburban growth.
The Coastside was certainly a lively place during Prohibition. Its
hidden ocean coves, thick fog for cover, and isolated canyons, the
setting was ideal for rum runners from Canada, and very local moon
shiners. Speakeasies and profitable traffic were hallmarks of the
Coastside for those years.
From the 1920s to the present, growth has been slow and steady.
Present day visitors of the Coastside will see original farms dating
back to the 1800s. There are miles of unchanged, white and sandy
beaches, redwood forests, beautiful state parks, and fields of wild
and cultivated flowers – hiking and biking trails along ocean bluffs
and among the mountains continue to make the coastside a joy for
modern day explorers.

Pillar Point
Harbor
is one of a dozen harbors
on the West Coast that
provides a “harbor refuge”
for commercial fishing boats and other
vessels. With its 369 berths, Pillar Point
Harbor has become a major commercial and
recreational fishing harbor on the California
Coast, and is an increasingly popular visitor
destination. Sportfishing, whale-watching
tours, recreational sailing, and kayaking can
all be found here. The Pillar Point marsh is
a well-known bird-watching area, while just
around the point is the famous Mavericks
surf spot. The small town of Princeton-bythe-Sea, where the harbor is located, was laid
out in 1908 and is noted for its streets named
after famous colleges. Besides boasting a
number of excellent restaurants, several
fresh fish markets, B&Bs, and a large hotel
and shopping arcade, the area has become a
busy artist and artisan colony encompassing
everything from welded works, glass and
pottery to oils and watercolors.

The Coastside is
extremely popular with
brides and grooms,
and because of its close proximity to San
Francisco and San Jose, it is a sensible and
enjoyable conference destination. The
community boasts fine restaurants, beautiful
bed and breakfasts, wonderful hotels,
redwood forests, beaches, floral farms and
a quaint harbor. Enjoy a relaxed vacation
atmosphere away from the hustle and bustle
of regular life. Only 30 miles from most Bay
Area companies and two major airports,
the Coastside is the perfect location for
weddings and conferences.

Miles of white sandy
beaches, redwood forests,
beautiful state parks, fields of wild flowers,
hiking and biking trails along ocean bluffs,
and mountains as far as the eye can see –
all of this and its proximity to San Francisco
and the greater Bay Area makes the Half
Moon Bay Coast an ideal place to call
home. Properties range from original farms
dating back to the 1800s to 6,000 squarefoot homes on a top-rated golf course
overlooking the Pacific Ocean. For more
real estate information, go to our website at
www.hmbchamber.com.

Points of Interest
The Half Moon Bay
Coastside Chamber’s
Ecotourism program
brings together local merchants who
promote sustainable business practices
and value the unique historic, natural and
cultural heritage of our Coast. Its goals are to
encourage members and to educate visitors
to be earth-friendly so that the Coastside
is well tended for all to enjoy. All certified
merchants that are listed in this section have
passed rigorous eco-standards, represented
by an on-site “e” logo. You can also find
the logo next to our certified merchants
throughout this guide.

The Coastside had the first formal
Ecotourism program in the state of California.
