  • Pacific Beach Coalition/Montara State Beach Cleanup

    Montara State Beach Cabrillo Hwy at 2nd Street, Montara

    Montara State Beach is a wide, mile-long beach just north of Montara along the San Mateo County Coast. Behind the beach are stunning sculpted sandstone cliffs making this a very photogenic spot. Montara State Beach is part of the Montara State Marine Reserve. Like underwater parks, these marine protected areas help conserve ocean wildlife and marine ecosystems. Volunteers will clean the beach, the bluffs, the parking lots, and both sides of the road from La Costanera restaurant to the north parking lot. Meet in the parking lot just to the right of the previously known as La Costanera restaurant (right next to the restaurant on the north side). Cabrillo Highway across from 2nd Street. Please register in advance.
