About the Montara State Beach in Montara
Site captains: Julianna, Iona and Janice.
Where to Meet: Cabrillo Highway across from 2nd Street. Meet in the parking lot just to the right of the previously known as La Costanera restaurant (right next to the restaurant on the north side).
Parking: Free.
Cleanup Areas: We will clean the beach, the bluffs, the parking lots, and both sides of the road from La Costanera restaurant to the north parking lot.
Supplies: Volunteers are encouraged to bring their own buckets and reusable gloves. Extra gloves, buckets and specific tools for this site cleanup will be provided while supplies last. The weather is changeable: make sure to bring extra layers, a hat, sunblock, water and snacks.
Litter: Expect to pick up plastic wrappers, cigarette butts, burnt pallets, other debris and recycling.
Restrooms: There is a public restroom in the South Parking Lot – South of La Costanera restaurant.

Special Regulations
Dogs: Dogs permitted on leash only. Use caution as there are dangerous sneaker waves, and a very strong rip current (NEVER turn your back on the ocean and watch children and pets carefully).
Pack your trash in and out. There are only two trash bins directly next to La Costanera and two in the Montara State Beach North parking lot.
Fires or BBQ grills and glass containers: Prohibited on beach.
Fireworks: Prohibited on beach.
Smoking: Prohibited on beach.
