Welcome to Montara
Montara is the Coastside's most northern community before the tunnels. Most homes are located just east of Highway 1, but a few cling to the cliffs above the Pacific or upon the foothills of Montara Mountain.
Montara has a long tradition as one of the Coastside's most closely-knit communities. It is well-known for neighborhood revelry on Halloween when some streets are shut to traffic so kids and adults alike can get into the spirit. It is neighbors with the Golden Gate National Recreation Area (GGNRA) and the beautiful McNee State Park. Skilled surfers will find uncrowded waves during much of the year. It is also Nate's most favorite beach in the entire world.
The Point Montara Lighthouse originally established in 1875 is still guiding sailors to this day. In 1980, part of the property was turned into a hostel and now hosts visitors from around the world.
While the western side of little Montara is dominated by the beach and ocean views, the eastern side has a distinctly rural feel with several horse ranches along Sunshine Valley Road. There is one school, Farallone View Elementary." HMB Review - Neighborhood Guide F/W 2019.
