The Scenic Road walkway--I prefer pathway--is a must do for locals and tourists alike. To say that you have driven along Scenic Road compares poorly to saying that you have walked the full distance, to include all of Scenic Road beyond the pathway. Feast your eyes on the beautiful setting, savor the sounds of the waves breaking on the beaches,... More

The walk along Scenic Road is like nothing we have seen before in our visits. The beautiful homes and stunning architecture are a sight to behold. The beach was beautiful with many folks walking their dogs and playing in the sand.

The Scenic Road Walkway is a must do in Carmel. It is a beautiful way to experience Carmel City Beach from the cliffs above the sand. The cottage homes along the road are fabulous -- the city has prohibited McMansions here -- and the vibe is so retro that you can almost hear Bing Crosby humming as you stroll. If... More

Sunset is a beautiful time to visit but so is mid-day. If you can manage to find a good deal to stay at a B&B and not get involved in all the craziness of heavy traffic endemic to this area, then it is even more enjoyable! Take a flashlight at sunset time as the town's lighting is, well, not-so-much (and... More

Enjoyed our walk on a paved path - beautiful ocean on one side and gorgeous homes on the other! It's easy to park along this walk way - a pleasant outing for all ages.

Ended a tour of the area here and stopped to admire the amazing sunset. The area wasn't too crowded, parking was easy to find, and the beach was quite nice. Great place to stop and spend some time.
