Costanoa is an eco adventure resort designed to encourage our guests to explore the stunning beauty of our protected California coastline and Discover the Pace of Nature.
Surrounded by endless acres of undisturbed wilderness, rolling coastal hills, and secluded beaches, Costanoa invites you to explore the extraordinary beauty of California’s scenic coast and experience nature in its purest form. Connected to four state parks, 30,000 acres of hiking trails and a vibrant wildlife reserve, Costanoa offers the unique opportunity to experience outdoor living in comfortable, stylish surroundings.
Located just one hour south of San Francisco on the eastside of historic Highway 1, our lodge and camp overlook a spectacular stretch of rugged bluffs and secluded panoramic beaches. Just moments to the south lies Año Nuevo, the nation’s largest Elephant Seal rookery, to the east stand the majestic redwoods of Big Basin State Park, and to the north the lighthouse at Pigeon Point towers gracefully over fields of pumpkins, artichokes and wild berries.
Costanoa lies at the center of one of the most ruggedly beautiful and spacious stretches of California’s coast. Here you’ll find no boundary between nature and the Costanoa base camp. The local wildlife, including many rare and endangered species, vastly outnumbers humans. The nearby reserve of Año Nuevo remains as pristine as it was around New Year’s Day in 1603, when Spanish maritime explorer Sebastian Vizcaino identified the coastal feature and diarist Father Antonio de la Ascension called it “Punta de Año Nuevo” (Point of New Year).
