Our favourite shop is 'Anthropologie' located on the upper level right at the end of the plaza. Parking available at the local parking garage... More

Carmel Plaza is a nice shopping area to visit. There are over 40 upscale stores such as Sur La Table, Tommy Bahamas, Cole Hahn, etc. Service is good at this center.

Just a lovely place to browse and buy! Nice combo of local places and a few chains. The fountain of woof was fun for my grand daughter.

Didn't expect to find great shopping in a smaller seaside town. This plaza has some higher end shops including Anthropologie, Cole Haan, J Crew, Kate Spade, and Tiffany & Co. They validate parking or you can park for free on the streets around the plaza (2 hour time limit), although harder to find during busy hours. We just moved our... More

As with all shopping malls, the Carmel Plaza shops have evolved over the years. There are a variety of shops centralized on the east end of town, ranging from independent retail shops to national chains to high end storefronts. There are also a hand full of eateries at CP. If street parking is crowded, there is underground parking beneath the... More

I found Carmel to be just stunning. Just driving around the town and seeing all the unique houses and architecture was pure joy. The hilly town makes for very interesting streets. Some arevery very narrow and steep and look more like alleyways but they are actual streets with homes people live in. Really an experience. The plaza with the shopping... More

Walking around Carmel Plaza is just gorgeous! I was more interested in looking at all the flower/landscaping designs than the shops! The cheese shop in Carmel Plaza was particularly fantastic as they helped us pick out wine and cheese and snacks for a little picnic that night. Some of the stores are chain stores you'll find at home and those... More
