A picturesque anchorage off West Cliff Drive and Cowell beach. It’s fun to watch the pro surfers ride Steamer Lane from a distance, and longboarders and beguinners ride Cowell.

The West side of the Santa Cruz Wharf is quiter and a bit more protected than the East side.

Note: No berthing allowed of any vessels up to the Santa Cruz Wharf.
