From the Pacific Ocean to the Santa Cruz Mountains, The Ritz-Carlton, Half Moon Bay is surrounded by the diverse beauty of Northern California. This unique setting is celebrated throughout, from the coastal décor and striking views in our accommodations to the locally sourced menus and wine lists at our restaurants.

A perfect base for exploring the region, our oceanfront resort offers its own unforgettable experiences. Guests can roast marshmallows around the fire; watch the sunset as the sound of crashing waves blends with that of a traditional bagpipe; pause for a few hours at our luxury spa; golf amid the rugged terrain or cypress trees on our two championship courses; or learn first-hand how Navio's Chef de Cuisine incorporates local, seasonal ingredients into his creative dishes.

No matter what brings you here, there are numerous reasons why you will want to stay.
