Capitola is an intimate beach village tucked in a river valley in Santa Cruz County on the Monterey Bay. The City’s wharf and riverside areas remind one of a village in France or perhaps a Mediterranean coast in Italy. Capitola Village is located along a wide beach with a breathtaking view of Monterey Bay. Capitola is a stone’s throw from The Forest of Nisene Marks State Park that offers 10,000 acres of rugged semi-wilderness filled with soaring redwood trees. Whether chillin’ in Capitola, boating in Monterey Bay or hiking in Nisene Marks, the Weekender® Capitola short is the perfect companion.
