Nice walk along the coast. Beautiful homes on one side and the ocean on the other. Definitely worth the effort and time.

A worthy walk & sightsee. Can be busy at certain times, but with that it is not crazy nor chaotic & has such a friendly atmosphere. It is a beautiful peninsula with some big some quaint homes. From the end of Ocean Ave, walk along the white sandy beach and among the rocks all the way to Carmel River, then... More

Beautiful scenery, you won't get lost and the homes are amazing, never mind the beach or the views over to Pebble Beach and the golf course. Worth a stroll at least once in your life.

This was a lovely walk along the coast. The walk is just above the beach and along a road of beautiful seaside homes. The sunset was the optimal time to visit. Times of people sitting and watching the sunset off in the distance. I am definitely coming back.

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

We came here after exploring Point Lobos and really enjoyed taking a long walk on this beach. It was towards the end of the day and the cloud cover had moved in but it was still very pleasant. This is really a great free activity that everyone can enjoy!

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.
