Moonstone Beach Drive is a short street of moderately priced hotels (for california), a pretty wooden boardwalk for admiring the ocean views and nature, fresh seafood restaurants, and a great picnic area. Another walk not to be missed in the area is the Fiscallini Ranch Preserve, not as touristed and hard to find parking - but loved by locals.

Moon Stone Drive is a real no brainier! Take the short drive, park walk and eat! Take Pictures, Watch the sunset, the waves. Feel the sea breeze, experience the lovely Cambria experience!

There are a number of lodging facilities along Moonstone Drive which parallels the ocean. There is a wooden boardwalk that traverses the entire length and was fun to walk, affording wonderful views of the Pacific and ends in a state beach. There are benches and picnic tables. And a great place to view the sunset. When we come to this... More

We had such a great time on Moonstone beach. Loved walking around at low tide and checking out all the critters in the water. There were harbor seals resting on the rocks too. Pretty sunsets too.

This is a beautiful beach just steps from a number of hotels. You get a very unspoiled beach, boardwalk and bluffs all easy walking distance from a number of inns on Moonstone Drive. One of the best places to spend the night either to start or end your big Sur drive.

Great boardwalk for a stroll along the coast. There is plenty of free parking along the road. Watch out for the squirrels, they are quiet friendly.

Every year we visit Moonstone Beach in Cambria where we rent a lovely & affordable two story home that sleeps eight & is dog friendly. We are right across the street from the boardwalk/ocean. We have enjoyed many walks along the boardwalk where people greet you & doggies can enjoy a moment of play. The boardwalk will take you to... More
