Bay Area’s best view…at a bus stop

A bus stop with an ocean view – from waaaaaay up! No need to take the bus to sit on this bench, though – there’s a public parking lot next to it for people who just want to see the view.

Where might you be going when you pass by this bus stop? For me, it’s usually Sam’s Chowder House in Half Moon Bay, cuz this bus stop is the first you see coming out of the tunnel driving south from Pacifica on Highway 1.

This awesome Bus 17/SamTrans bus stop is right at a vista point. It’s way up on a cliff looking down at the Pacific Ocean. The weather has been so awesome, I had to stop by and take it all in.


If you’re headed north on Highway 1 from Santa Cruz, you’ll be able to stop at a traffic light and pull over into a public parking lot at this bus stop right BEFORE the tunnel that takes you into Pacifica. If you’re driving south on Highway 1 from Pacifica, be ready to pull into the parking lot right when you come out of the tunnel.

Or better yet, take the bus ~

*You’ll find the bus stop is just above Devil’s Slide Bunker, just across Highway 1 from the Caltrans Devils Slide yard which is at 6000 Pacific Coast Hwy, Half Moon Bay, CA 94019.
