What to Do

Beaches
Capitola State beach sits right on the edge of Capitola Village acting as the perfect break from shopping or to nap off your last meal.

New Brighton State Beach just around the corner provides small wave for family fun.

Pleasure Point & Steamers Lane is just up the coast for world class surfing and beautiful cliff views.

Get Active
Surfing is hard to ignore in this town being the international headquarters of Oneill’s and many world renowned surfers. Kayak out past the Capitola Wharf, avoiding the lines of the fishermen casting from the pier above. Long walks and jogs along the coast or Depot Hill stairs for a natural "stair-master". Several neighborhood gyms for yoga, barre, or spin class.
