Pacifica’s Taco Bell—The Coolest Taco Bell in the World?!

What is happening? Why am I writing about Taco Bell? Well, aside from the fact that it’s my favorite fast-food restaurant, there’s actually a really cool Taco Bell in Pacifica, California you should know about. Yes… Really!

On the sandy shores of Pacifica, just a stone’s throw from the bustling streets of San Francisco, lies a Taco Bell unlike any other.

This isn’t your typical fast-food joint; it’s a beachfront paradise that serves up those familiar tacos and burritos with a side of breathtaking ocean views.

It’s a must-visit spot if you’re driving between San Francisco and Half Moon Bay.

Pacifica Taco Bell

What sets this Taco Bell apart is its incredible location. Positioned directly on the beach (like really RIGHT on the beach), it offers diners the rare opportunity to enjoy their meals while listening to the waves and watching surfers shred it on the Pacific Ocean.

The architecture complements its beachy backdrop perfectly with a laid-back, surf-themed decor and a wooden exterior.

And if you’re coming straight from the sand, there’s even a walk-up window, making it easy to grab a bite without leaving the beach.

It’s often touted as the world’s most scenic Taco Bell, and once you get here, you’ll know why!

Things to Do Nearby…?

OK, so, like… Is there something else to do here? What if I don’t like tacos (what is wrong with you!?)

This Taco Bell is right on Pacifica State Beach, so after downing some tacos, you can go for a long walk on the beach to work it off.

If you prefer, you can bring your board and go for a surf, too, although I recommend tacos AFTER your surf session.

There’s also the Rockaway Trail, which starts pretty much right at the Taco Bell.
