Due note: Some time it is difficult to find parking nearby

My thoughts: We spend here a midweek day late afternoon, just to re-energize and hike on the beach during low tide.

The visit:

The main attractions are the pier with the restaurant at it end and the colorful hotel (Capitola Venetian Hotel) on the beach front as well as additional restaurants at the street nearby.

We visit here during Kovid-19 mid-weekday afternoon, so all was close

Just below the pier there is Capitola State Beach, where the lagune of Soquel Creek ends.
Looks like the beaches to the north are more populars with surfers.
