Foundation’s beach access efforts and the Open Martin’s Beach project, in particular. Martin’s Beach is a pocket beach just south of Half Moon Bay. It had long been open to the public until soon after it was sold in 2008; not long after the property changed hands, public access was denied. Currently, the San Mateo County Chapter and local allies are working together to Open Martin’s Beach to the public and to the families who have enjoyed it for generations once again.
