What a great place to just walk the streets down to the beach, then a leisurely stroll on the beach and into the Pacific surf. Very RELAXING!!!!

This is a scenic area in Carmel with interesting homes. I have imagined how it might be like to live here and walk out with one's morning coffee and have breakfast each morning with such amazingly stunning views. Its a place to let the imagination run wild and enjoy the scenic views. One can walk along the way and enjoy... More

Good views of otters, sea lions, seals, pelicans, and comorants. Even a bird rookery with baby comorants if you walk out on one of the Jettys. Pretty heavy bike traffic on the walkway so stay alert.

This is the perfect short walk for people who want to see gorgeous views without trudging along for miles on end. Along the road, there are little walkways to get back up to the roads, so you can stop whenever you feel like it. At some point during your walk, be sure to take one of the stairways down to... More

I just want to echo the other reviews. This is a great walk along the ocean accented with unique houses. Recommended by our friends at the Carmel Garden Inn. it looks like bathroom facilities are under construction.

This is a lovely walk that I never got tired of! If you are interested in architecture you will be pleased as you walk past each pricy home on this street overlooking the Pacific Ocean. No two are alike! Plenty of benches to drop onto when the mood strikes you. Lovely just lovely!

I've never quite seen a road like this before. It felt like I was driving in someone's front yard at times and at one point, I thought I'd drive right into the ocean! Keep to the speed limit and smile, this road is windy and beautiful!
