The Pelican Point Inn is a bit off the beaten path, and that's a good thing. Maintaining the old cottage charm that made it a popular stay decades ago, Pelican Point has renovated to the highest standards, providing guest with a comfortable and convenient stay.
Located near the Santa Cruz Yacht Harbor, Pelican Point is close to three beautiful beaches: Twin Lakes Beach, The Sheltered Cove Beach, and Pleasure Point Beach. While these sandy spots fill up during the summer months, they get no where near as crowded as Main Beach or Cowell's Beach. The Capitola Village is near by, as is the Forest of Nisene Marks, a great local state park. Oh, and let's not forget the yacht harbor itself, full of activities for the whole family like kayak excursions, paddle boarding, and sailing tours.
All rooms come with a kitchenette, hard wood floors, high speed Internet, and DVD players.
