  • Area around the lighthouse is very nice and clean. We were there at low tide, so we could walk up to the lighthouse without getting drenched by breaking waves. Very cool!

  • We went to Santa Cruz Harbor Beach on a gorgeous sunny December day. Its a nice place to walk and see the views. We also had lunch at the Crow's Nest

  • Very nice boat launch. Has great boat wash station with a change machine for quarters. Only downside I noticed to this place is that the store at the dock is not at all for any fishing supplies and tackle. Make sure if you're launching to fish you come prepared. Otherwise this is my favorite harbor yet!
  • A great place to launch your boat. The wide ramp can accommodate 5-7 boats at a time depending upon boat size and the Captain's abilities. I've seen madness and mayhem on occasion. Most of the time things go smoothly and then there are time when someone gives a hard yank on the starter rope and ends up in the water.
