New Brighton State Beach Surf

Seems like a lot of locals to the Bay Area are not aware of this great State Beach., located just 1/2 hour from San Jose. Right off Hwy 1 just South of Capitola is a great beach to take a stroll or run or even camp ( at adjoining camp sites, but need Reserve America 6 months in advance.) You can walk South on the beach to Aptos and have a nice deli sandwich or a drink at one of the small restaurants beachside, or when the surf is out (early AM) walk to Capitola for a coffee (but mind the time the surf comes back in. It is generally a quiet beach filled with like-minded visitors who just want to get away for the day - day use and parking is inexpensive too.
