Fitzgerald Marine Reserve

Nature Reserve in Montara & Moss Beach

At Moss Beach, this marine reserve protects tide pools teeming with sea life. Walk out among the pools at low tide – wearing shoes that you can get wet – and explore the myriad crabs, sea stars, mollusks and rainbow-colored sea anemone. Note that it’s illegal to remove any creatures, shells or even rocks from the marine reserve.

From Hwy 1, turn west on to Vermont Ave, which becomes Lake St and intersects Nevada Ave. SamTrans bus 17 stops along Hwy 1, only a five-minute walk or so from the reserve.
