Went with girlfriend and had a great time. Fresh air, beautiful scenery, and well groomed trails. Saw seals and birds. Unfortunately stairs to china beach were out. Great park.
Despite overcast and cold weather the stop at Lobos Point was one to remember. The seals and sea lions appeared in large numbers. We brought binoculars and could see a larger band of dolphins hunting in the ocean. Great place for photographers.
The perfect place to go to walk around and get up close and personal with the California coast. We went on 2 separate days for a total of 6 hours but you could easily spend a lot more time (or less if you want). Some trails are more elevated and rocky than others but the trails are clearly marked and... More
The geology of this place is fascinating, creating one of the most dramatic seascape. The addition of the wind swept pine and cypress forest makes walking through this place even more amazing.
Point Lobos is probably my favorite place in the world. I have been several times as both a child and an adult, and each time I am blown away by the amazing beauty. The wildlife is stunning, and the best thing to do is to poke around in the tidal pools. The beaches at China Cove and Gibson beach are... More
The park is nice but no dogs are allowed even though the park is 5 minutes south of dog-friendly Carmel. That was disappointing but folks with dogs that intend to go here should know.
Just minutes outside of Carmel, a great place to start your Big Sur tour! Beatiful reviews, lots of interesting info. including a whaling museum and very helpful and knowledgeable docents!
The weather was not very good to visit this place, but we really enjoyed this place in spite of light fog and light rain! We have seen a lot of wild animals, and some splashes from whales, hard to see!! All the volunteers are nice and do not hesitate to ask them about this park, I went a lot of... More
Nice hiking along the coast with amazing views. can get a decent work out in if you hopalong the rocks and take some of the stairs. The South Shore trail goes on for a while and you have complete views of the water. The north shore trail doesn't go very far and is mostly covered.
An Absolute must! Helps to get there early as parking is limited - and may have to park on Hwy 1 and walk a bit. This is nature at its best and easy to get to and see. You will need about 2-4 hours, depending upon how much walking you wish to do.
