The walkway along Scenic Drive in Carmel-by-the-Sea provides an indescribable experience with vistas around every corner, gingerbread houses that look like a wonderland, accented by the Pacific Ocean, Monterey Pine trees and a long, sandy beach. To get there, take Ocean Ave. off of Hwy 1, driving towards the ocean all the way through town, until you reach the very... More

We parked up at the top end of Carmel and walked to the beach. The beach is a huge curve of warm soft clean sand leading to the Road walkway. the road leads up and around the headland and we stood and watched a large pod of whales feeding in the bay.

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.
