Surfers Beach

Surfers Beach, aka El Granada Beach in Half Moon Bay, is experiencing severe erosion and threatening to undermine Highway 1. At the same time, portions of the adjacent Pillar Point Harbor are being infilled with excess sediment. CSMW is participating in a stakeholder workgroup to determine what steps can be taken to help resolve these issues to the satisfaction of all parties involved. An initial meeting of the Surfers Beach/Pillar Point Harbor Workgroup met on November 10, 2009, to familiarize members of the workgroup with available information. A historical overview of the area was presented by USACE, and the presentation is available through a link to your right. The Pillar Point Harbormaster, Peter Grenell, leads the SBPPH workgroup, and he will advise members of the next meeting and steps. He can be reached at harbordistrict@smharbor.com.
