Once known as Spanishtown, Half Moon Bay is the oldest settlement in San Mateo County, California. Dating back to the Spanish land grants of the 1840s, the intriguing history of this romantic seaside town includes a prominent role in the foundation of the Ocean Shore Railroad and colorful exploits of 1930s-era rumrunners.

Incorporated in 1959, modern Half Moon Bay offers visitors an endless variety of activities. Half Moon Bay consists of five distinct regions that combine to make it a diverse and unique destination experience. The Coastal Region, where the resort resides, offers world class beaches, surfing, horseback riding and oceanfront dining. Historic Main Street offers dining, art and shopping. The Pumpkin Region (Half Moon Bay is home to one of the largest pumpkin festivals in the world occurring every October) offers organic fruit stands, wine tasting, farms and glass blowing. The Redwood Region allows our guests to hike, bike or horseback ride amongst the awe-inspiring Northern California scenery. Finally, the Santa Cruz Mountain Region features more than 70 wineries offering wine tasting right in our backyard. The Ritz-Carlton, Half Moon Bay resort offers a distinct destination for Northern California Coast vacations, situated 23 miles from the San Francisco airport and the San Francisco Bay Area.

The warm invitation of a cozy fire and the delight of discovery in a local wine are at the heart of the guest experience at The Ritz-Carlton, Half Moon Bay. Set upon a bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean, this luxury resort offers a secluded setting that is also easily accessible, whether arriving at SFO airport just 23 miles away, or exploring destinations including downtown San Francisco, Napa Valley and Santa Cruz. The only Bay area golf resort with a coastal setting, the Half Moon Bay hotel features two championship courses that appeal to players of varying skill levels, and numerous opportunities to enjoy the scenic setting. On the Ocean Lawn, communal firepits welcome guests to roast marshmallows and watch the sunset, while the VIK program encourages young travelers to explore the resort on a scavenger hunt.
