Opal Cliffs

Nestled along the cliffs of the Monterey Bay

Welcome to Opal Cliffs, a beautiful neighborhood along the Pacific Ocean between Pleasure Point & Capitola.  A majority of the oceanfront homes on the eastside of Santa Cruz are located along Opal Cliffs drive. The neighborhood’s local beach is called “Privates” and it’s a great place to lay out or catch a surf.  You’re also centrally located between Pleasure Point and Capitola Village so you can walk or ride your cruiser to everything!!


Opal Cliffs is nestled along the ocean between Pleasure Point and Capitola with easy access to Highway 1 from 41st Avenue

Home Sale Prices

Anywhere from one million five to ten million plus for a single family home.


You are in an awesome neighborhood that is located in between two other awesome neighborhoods. Walk or ride your bike to everything including three of the best coffee shops in town along with multiple surf shops, boutiques, yoga studios and restaurants on lower 41st Avenue and Capitola Village.  If you need some groceries, New Leaf Market and Whole Foods Market are just minutes away.
