Pescadero, California

Welcome to Pescadero

A popular tourist destination along the rugged California coast, Pescadero is an outdoor enthusiast's paradise with a dynamic blend of beach and mountain terrain. Pescadero State Beach, filled with sand dunes, jagged cliffs, protected marshes, tide pools and picnic spots, is a mile-long preserve ideal for families and couples alike. Just under half an hour away, the Santa Cruz Mountains offer miles of pristine hiking and biking trails. A working blend of urban and rural (Pescadero still has large stretches of farm land), Pescadero hosts the Pescadero Art and Fun Fair, a country fair occurring every August with live music, local vendors and organic food set amid the historic 19th century ambiance of downtown Pescadero.

Pescadero Hotels

Known for an eclectic variety of lodging options, Pescadero hotels include lavish, eco-friendly resorts with deluxe rooms alongside well-equipped campsites, historic bed and breakfasts and memorable vacation rentals situated on a working horse farm in full view of the Pescadero's Pigeon Point Light House.

Pescadero Restaurants

Away from the teaming seas (Pescadero means fisherman in Spanish), fertile Pescadero farmland provides an abundance of organic produce. It's no surprise then that seafood restaurants accented with local produce are highlights of the Pescadero restaurant scene. Among them, Duarte's Tavern near the beach is arguably Pescadero's most popular restaurant.
