Spent the day at Capitola Beach! There was not a lot of parking but a few blocks up behind the police station. There was pay parking, which was only 50 cents and an hr super cheap. There are lots of local shops on the walk to the beach. Great kid friendly area to spend the day with your family.

Summer is winding down but the beach is still popular. Business as usual for many but unfortunately the the wharf is still in ruins. Capitola is a wonderful little bit of the Central California Coast that everyone needs to experience.

Now warf is closed. Getting parking is not easy. If you reach before 10am, some parking are there. We reach the beach at 10:20am, very few people. When we are leaving 2pm, it’s full pack.
