Martin's Beach is a pocket beach just south of Half Moon Bay. It had long been visited by the public until soon after it was sold in 2008 to a then-anonymous owner for $32.5 million. Not long after the property changed hands, the billboard was painted over and a keycard gate was closed permanently to the public. Currently, the San Mateo County Chapter and its allies are working together to Open Martin's Beach once again to the public and to the families who have enjoyed it for generations.
