Lobitos, California is a populated place in San Mateo County, just east of State Route 1 and south of Half Moon Bay and the ghost town of Purissima. Its location is latitude 372259N, longitude 1222357W; decimal degrees: latitude 37.38306, longitude -122.39917. It is 165 feet above sea level.[1]

The small community is home to the Lobitos Creek Ranch, a full-service production and post production studio offering a wide variety of services for video and digital media production, including development, co-production, editing, animation, DVD, Web-enabled DVD, and multimedia design and authoring.[2]

The Ocean Shore Railroad, which operated between San Francisco and Tunitas Creek from 1907 to 1920, passed near the village. There was apparently no station in Lobitos.[3] Highway 1 originally passed through Lobitos; it was later rerouted to the west of the village, closely following the old railroad route. Today, the portion of the former state highway through Lobitos has become Verde Road. The Lobitos Creek Cut-Off connects the village with Tunitas Creek Road, which runs between Highway 1 and State Route 35 (Skyline Boulevard).

Lobitos was originally named Tunitas.[4]
