Half Moon Bay beaches may not be the best for swimming, but many of them are perfect for kite flying. This might explain why it's home to one of the best kite stores anywhere. The staff can offer lots of excellent advice on kites and flying. Lunar Wind Inventions is a family owned kite and toy store that has been a coastal destination since 1997. Besides kites for all skill levels and age groups, there is a wonderful selection of nontraditional toys, such as Ugly Dolls and Melissa & Doug educational toys.
