What started out as a wharf in 1866 is now a bona fide destination. In addition to a quaint fishing village vibe, the area features several antique shops, art studios, fresh seafood markets and delightful restaurants all within strolling distance of each other. Take a look at a sample Moss Landing itinerary for ideas on how to spend a quiet getaway weekend.
Moss Landing Boating
If you own a boat, you're in luck. Moss Landing has over 600 slips for recreational boaters and commercial vessels. Contact the Moss Landing Harbor District for more information.
Elkhorn Slough Reserve
For the more adventurous, a diverse and one-of-a-kind ecosystem known as Elkhorn Slough Reserve beckons.
Moss Landing Restaurants
It's no surprise that restaurants in an active fishing area would feature fresh-caught seafood. Moss Landing restaurants feature seafood fresh from Monterey Bay, sometimes brought to your plate directly from the boat with only a brief stop in the kitchen. Dine on the cioppino that defeated Bobby Flay's at Phil's Fish Market, try a mix of traditional and unique Mexican cuisine at The Whole Enchilada or dine amidst art at Haute Enchilada Art Cafe.
Moss Landing Hotels and Accommodations
Enjoy the quiet tranquility of Moss Landing with views of the ocean when you stay at a Moss Landing hotel. The Captain's Inn at Moss Landing is housed in a historic building, and features soaking tubs and furniture made from actual boats, as well as a stick-to-your-ribs breakfast. For even more privacy, rent a townhome from the Monterey Dunes Company. Coming in your RV? The Moss Landing KOA Express Plus features full hook-ups at each site.
