Santa Cruz County’s Northern Coast

The North Coast of Santa Cruz County is a pristine mountainous area that sweeps down into the Pacific Ocean with steep cliffs and secluded beaches. It is sparsely populated, and there are few homes for sale here. Most people you see in this area are visitors. If you are lucky enough to purchase property here, you will enjoy a private life with few neighbors, spectacular views, and be living at least partially off the grid.
