A spectacular stretch of central California coastline with breathtaking ocean views and empty beaches. There are numerous motels and restaurants in the area for overnight visitors that offer ocean front rooms at fairly reasonable rates

We loved the fact that the restaurant has blankets to share for those outside diners that aren't close enough to benefit from the space heaters. Beautiful sunset - what more could you want?

This drive was a pleasant one. They had a walkway by the sea, so you can park your car and walk near the sea.

There are lots of small hotels right along Moonstone Dr. with beautiful views of the pacific ocean and the sunsets. Its a short drive maybe a mile. There are beach access along there and a nature walk way. Check it out I think you will love it
