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!

This is a must when visiting Cambria. Lots of nice places to stay and dining with a view. Nice board walk and beach. Lots of surfers. Saw lots of whale activity.

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

20-30 minutes walking from Cambria you can reach this wonderful place enjoying one of the best views of my California tour. Along this drive it's very easy to find lovely squirrels.
