When the Native Americans named this part of our county, they called it Awatos - “Where the Waters Meet.” The name honors the spot where two creeks joined before traveling together to the bay. Today, we call this place Aptos.

This is where you’ll find people living in everything from rustic little mountain cabins in the redwoods to sprawling contemporary homes on the golf course. It follows that the sights of Aptos are equally diverse. Within a few minutes, you can go from the nature trails of a redwood forest to the relaxed elegance of Seascape Resort. Most likely, you’ll meet the same people in both places. This is a spot where nature and modern life get along just fine together.

It’s also a place of good humor. If you doubt that, then come by for the Aptos Fourth of July parade. Billed as “The World’s Shortest Parade,” it covers all of two blocks and includes nearly every Aptos resident, both human and animal. Even visitors are welcome to participate - just arrive in costume and be prepared for fun.

Aptos Village itself is just a tiny dot on the local map, but it’s well worth the visit. The old Bayview Hotel anchors this quaint shopping district, comprised mainly of friendly little shops and restaurants. A visit to the Cafe Sparrow is a must. This French-inspired cafe is a local favorite for Sunday brunch or casual dinners. The Native Americans recognized the special qualities of this home they called Awatos. You’ll still find those qualities here, in the place where the waters meet.

The majority of homes within the Aptos community are single family homes, but there are condos and townhomes located near the town center and above New Brighton State Beach.  Aptos is served by the Pajaro Valley Unified School District, and the primary zip code is 95033. Below is the historical sales data for Aptos.
