Six miles east of Santa Cruz, the diminutive beach town of Capitola nestles quaintly between ocean bluffs. By the beach, downtown is laid out for strolling, where cutesy shops and touristy restaurants inhabit seaside houses. Drop by local operators to rent water-sports gear or, if you book ahead, take surfing and SUP lessons.
