The City of Capitola sits on the shores of the Pacific Ocean along Monterey Bay. Located just 35 miles southwest of San Jose and less than two hours’ drive from San Francisco, “Camp Capitola” began as a popular beachfront tourist destination. Today the City maintains those roots and has added a vibrant commercial district and several distinct residential neighbourhoods. Nearly 10,000 people call Capitola home, and countless more visit to enjoy both its natural beauty and other attractions.
The Capitola beach is extremely popular considering the number of tourist that flock in here. Hence parking of cars is a huge problem and every nook and corner, roads and the authorized car parks are full. Well we were fortunate to find an excellent spot and spent a couple of hours roaming on the beach soaking in the bright Californian sunny weather.
