Montara is a stunning beachfront community located on the Central Coast. Just 20 minutes from San Francisco, it is adorned with deep-blue ocean shores, striking coastal rock formations, and sandy-white beaches. Montara has a rustic quality that attracts visitors from the San Francisco Bay Area looking for refuge from the bustling city life. Originally a fog station built in 1875, the Point Montara Lighthouse is still standing today. Its cast-iron frame is now a California State Park and hostel that hosts travelers from all over the world. Its own Montara State Beach Recreational Area offers surfing, sailing and whale watching, while the nearby Montara Mountains provide biking and hiking. Outdoor adventure and beachfront charm make Montara the perfect choice for ideal seaside living.
