Beautiful Carmel by the Sea

My favorite walk when I am here. The most beautiful walk I have been on. White sand beach and lovely ocean view. Great to bring your dog since Carmel loves their dogs!

We ended up driving around this as opposed to walking, since we were short on time. The views were fantastic and the homes were just as wonderful to look at too. Don't miss if you are in the area.

This is a lovely area to walk. While we were there, the crowds were limited, with a few dogs. I enjoyed the interaction with others, beyond the natural beauty.

Either drive or walk it, the houses on the one side are amazing, and on the other side you have the ocean view and beach view!!

The path has an ample number of benches to sit on and enjoy the beautiful view of the beach. The path is long and wear thongs. It's great to walk your dog on. They're are rest rooms on the way and lots of trees for shade. The waves come in about 3:00 PM. Usually there is a wedding being set... More

A one-and-a-half mile sidewalk stroll (or run!) between Carmel Beach and Carmel River Beach with the beautiful Pacific Ocean on one side and $4+ million dollar homes on the other. Surfers, sunbathers, beach frolickers, children playing, and dogs on the sand below add interest to the lovely walk.

Walk along the white sugar-sand beach or along the sidewalk above the beach. The Scenic Road Walkway hugs some of the most glorious of the California coastline. Visit the mouth of the Carmel River (it is on the walk), and enjoy the charming homes along the route. We saw humpback whales, otters, so much to enjoy.
