If you were to ask most Americans where the oldest beach resort was in California, they’d likely answer something like Malibu or Santa Monica — a place where one might imagine meeting the Beach Boys back in the 1960s. They might be surprised to know that the oldest beach resort on the West Coast is right here in the Bay Area. It’s tiny little Capitola. Grab your board!
If you’re a little unsure, here are some classic beach town facts: Capitola is home to the junior lifeguard summer camp for literal Beach Boys (and Girls). In the summer of 1961, the town was attacked by birds. They were harmless, but the incident inspired the famous Alfred Hitchcock film “The Birds.” The very first condominium beach community was built in Capitola long before The Beach Boys, in 1924.
As you might imagine, Capitola’s beaches make it a popular tourist destination for people from all over California and the United States.The beaches aren’t the only draw, though. Capitola’s downtown area is totally 21st century adorable!
