    1. A very late response... it is near the rock beach on Terranea resort. If you follow the path from the lower pool, you will come to the beach and caves. People often dive there for abalone

  4. The inside of the cave I believe was a built set at Warner Brothers Studio. They built only three walls and would rotate them during filming.

    The bridge the guys hung off of was filmed at the location above however, when they are on the bottom and drop that was a built set at Warner as well I believe.

    Absolute favorite movie of all time. I lived in Santa Cruz ten years ago and sometimes wish I had stayed!

  7. I was wondering where they filmed one of the last lost boys after Corey Haim passed- The beach was beautiful and I tried to look up the bookstore cause I saw an address there not no luck not even with that torn down asylum.

  8. I'm on my way to the area. Are we aloud to enter through the resort to see the cave?

    1. To be honest I'm not sure because when I visited this location they were just building the resort so using the beach to walk around was my only option. If I visited today though I'd definitely go through the resort, the worst they can tell you is no :)

  11. I love how the SC boardwalk barely changed. Defiantly a fun place to go to, the foods really expensive though.

  12. The movie just came on a few hours ago, such a great feeling of nostalgia to watch, wow! Its been hard to find movies that had the same sense of adventure like this movie, and so many others in the 80's which was THE DECADE where movies embodied that.

  16. We have literally just moved to Santa Cruz and I'm thrilled! The Lost Boys is one of my all time favorite movies! Hopeful I can visit a few of the haunts listed above! I wonder if visitors can get close enough to Grandpa's house for photo opps?

    1. Christine Marie Chen, there is a fence surrounding the building but that should be plenty close enough for a good photo op.
