The beach is located 14.5 miles south of Half Moon Bay on Highway 1. There are three separate parking areas: North Pescadero, Middle/Central Pescadero, and South Pescadero. Driving south on Highway 1, as you come down a hill, turn right into the N. Pescadero State Beach parking lot. If you have crossed the bridge, you have gone too far. Driving north on Highway 1, the parking lot is located 1 mile north of Pescadero Road. After you have crossed the bridge, you will turn left into the parking lot. Once parked, use the path on the south side of the parking lot to reach the beach.
Please note that the North Pescadero parking lot has a self-registered parking fee.
Portable toilets are located in the parking area.
