From Pacifica to Pescadero and south to the Santa Cruz County line, San Mateo County has 75 miles of stunning, rugged coastline. Development has been minimal, but a detailed history lurks among these rocky coves, sandybeaches, and barking sea lions. After European contact, Portuguese fishermen set up shop here, establishing themselves throughout the coast and pulling in a remarkable catch from the waters. Others soon joined and built the larger cities of Half Moon Bay and Pacifica, along with smaller communities like Montara, El Granada, and San Gregorio. Fishing and agriculture have coexistedhere for decades, along with government operations such as Coast Guard light stations, defense artillery bunkers, and the Air Force station at Pillar Point.
