Mavericks Beach

W Point Avenue
Half Moon Bay, CA 94019

Mavericks, an enormous wave that breaks offshore, has gained recognition as one of the biggest surfing waves in the world. The surf competition is called 24 hours in advance, between November & March.

Please note, Mavericks is in a Marine Reserve and we should do everything we can to help preserve the natural beauty of the environment. If the parking lot is full, please do not try and park your car on the side of the road. Not only is this illegal and you will most likely get a ticket, but it greatly impacts the Marine Reserve. Alternate parking areas are off Harvard Avenue or in the Princeton Harbor.
