The boardwalk along the beach on Moonstone Drive was a great addition to the area. It makes walking here accessible to everyone from toddlers to older folks who might not manage the sand / stones easily. There are benches along the way and points to stop and admire the view. You can access the beach in more that one location.... More

We stayed at a motel on this road. We were able to walk up and down the boardwalk during the morning and evening. The evening stroll was wonderful to be able to watch the setting sun and take photos. It is a great drive as well but I really enjoyed walking along the shore.

Our 18 month old had a blast walking up and down the walking path looking at all of the squirrels. This is such a neat place and amazing beach.

What an unexpected pleasure. Walking along the board walk by the sea shore. Even at the busiest time of year it is not to busy and not commercial at all. No ferris wheels, people selling stuff and brightly lit signs. Just the sea, the chipmunks scampering, and you.

This is my favorite part of regular visits to charming Cambria! Relax and enjoy a meal or wine and fabulous appetizer like the shrimp crostini at the Moonstone Beach Bar & Grill or dinner at the Sea Chest Oyster Bar open 5:30 PM. Visit any time day or night, then youcan walk off your meal, say hello to passing friendly... More

Park your car and walk the boardwalk that runs along the roadway. Gorgeous views! Lots of lodging choices and a few good seafood restaurants, so stop and enjoy.

Whether you choose to drive along Moonstone Beach along the drive or get out and walk on a real walkway made of boards (and well maintained) do set time aside to do at least one of these. If you are lucky enough to stay at a place along the drive you should certainly go out walking every morning and evening.... More
