City Encourages Beachgoers to Help Keep it Clean!

Half Moon Bay, CA - Among the natural treasures that make the City of Half Moon Bay a wonderful destination are its world-class beaches and bluff tops, which are visited by thousands of people throughout the year.

Unfortunately, with that high level of use the ongoing problem of litter on the beaches and bluff tops becomes worse and worse.

For everyone planning to enjoy Half Moon Bay beaches this summer:
