Capitola Beach is located in Santa Cruz County, California. It has got a fisherman's wharf and a sandy beach that has become popular with tourists. A bit further up north there's a popular surf spot for for surfers of all levels. During my time there, I enjoyed watching a surfing class being conducted. It certainly looks so fun and interesting. The beach is absolutely a good place to chill out. I would recommend to put this on your checklist if you are doing a Pacific Coast Highway road trip.
