  • We love the Ritz-Carlton Half Moon Bay as a unique and relaxing seaside getaway for local Bay Area families and visitors alike. Ireland-meets-California in this spectacular setting comprised of cliffs and breathtaking ocean views. It’s hard to believe the location is just 23 miles from the San Francisco airport. Public areas are grand but it’s the glorious outdoor terrace and walking paths that attract families from around the world. The surf at the beach adjacent to the hotel is too rough for kids to swim, but there’s an indoor pool available. The Ritz Kids program is offered for ages five to twelve, plus there are enough wonderful local outdoors-oriented attractions to keep everyone entertained.
