We walked down Moonstone Drive from our hotel and it was a great walk. It's right next to the ocean so the view is wonderful. We also drove down it a couple of times slowly and it's a great drive with lovely scenery.

Moonstone Drive has one of the most blissful water views on the California coast. You can drive down the street but it will be difficult keeping your eyes on the road. There are several parking sections, park along the road or the day parking lots at either end of the Drive. It is an easy walk along the wooden boardwalk... More

Have never been to Cambria and booked our B&B (White Water Inn) on Moonstone Drive after reading about it on Trip Advisor. The Inn is lovely and the boardwalk on the beach is right across the street. What a lovely place!

The boardwalk on Moonstone drive is gorgeous. It is about a mile walk but well worth it. The scenery and wildlife along the way are just incredible.

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.
