When we were visiting during Thanksgiving week, there weren't many visitors, and the vistas were outstanding. Lovely place to visit, with easy access and a short trail.

It has a place you can sit facing south and watch the waves crash in. Wow when there's a storm it is dynamic. there are picnic tables, restrooms,... More

I was in Cambria on a spectacular sunny and warm day. The views of the Pacific Ocean from this delightful park area were amazing.

My wife and I were married there 20 years ago. A great place to picnic, relax, and enjoy the scenery.

Quiet and nice protected beach. Has a launch ramp for kayaks and small craft. Be careful of submerged rocks all around cove. Easy access to Piedras Blancas for diving (be careful of fog as it comes in quickly at different times of the year).

Always a great setting at the end of Moonstone beach drive. Clean bathrooms. Stairs down to the water. There is a boat ramp to lanch from. Tide pools when its low tide. There is an abundance of Picnic tables and Bbq's. I often grab a bite in town and come here to have my lunch.

Whenever my family and I stay in Cambria, we make it a point to view the sunset from Leffingwell Landing. The bluffs provide a great, unobstructed view of the sun setting over the ocean. There's plenty of parking as well as picnic tables and benches. We've never used the picnic area since we go there just to watch the sunsets... More

There is a great scenic hike just north of the pier that starts on the beach as the cove curves. It takes you to the tip of the headlands. To get there you pass through groves of eucalyptus and pine groves. There is a tunnel of trees to walk through. Views of Hearst Castle, a bird rookery, unbelievable views of... More
