El Granada

El Granada, “The Coastal Sunbelt,” has something for everyone, from large hillside homes with a view to single-family homes, and “downtown” apartments with an ocean view.

Home prices range from $750,000 to $2.5 million. This town with a population of a little over 5,000 has wonderful eucalyptus groves and is considered by many to have the best weather you can find along the Coast.   This midcoast  community is situated on the east side of Highway 1,  just minutes north of Half Moon Bay, El Granada provides residents and visitors with charming shops, one of a kind seafood cuisine, and quaint restaurants.   It is also a popular place to buy fish from local fisherman right off the docks of the working harbor at Pillar Point.

El Granada is home to the world-class surf break “Mavericks” which attracts thousands of surf watchers for the Annual Big Wave Surf Championship.

The community was originally planned by the Ocean Shore Railroad to be the “Jewel of the Coast” a resort style community to rival Atlantic City in its heyday. However, when the railroad failed the development was halted.  Today the community is divided into four very different areas, El Granada Highlands, Princeton-By-The-Seas “Clipper Ridge”, Princeton and Pillar Point Harbor, and the area of El Granada located East of Hwy 1.  The Princeton Harbor area is a blend of visitor-serving businesses, commercial and fishing industry businesses, warehouses, and boat yards.  It is also home to the local Yacht Club.  You can also enjoy the winery, paddle boarding, kayaking, fishing, and take part in a whale watching excursion all located in the Harbor.

El Granada, "the Coastal Sunbelt", has something for everyone, from large hillside homes with views to individual family homes or "downtown" apartments with an ocean view. This town of 4,500 people has wonderful eucalyptus groves and is considered by many to have the best weather along the Coast. "Mavericks", the famous surfing spot, is located in El Granada.
