Put on your comfy shoes and walk / run this stretch of California coast with white sands and turquoise waters on one side and multi million dollar mansions on the other. Yet the feel is very relaxing, peaceful, and enchanted.

Perfect way to walk along the beach and not get sand in your shoes :) - walking path is wide and easy to walk on.

This is a lovely place to walk with or without a dog or to ride a bike. Gorgeous period homes, some more modern, gardens, trees, and the ocean!

We road our bikes on this road and it was breathtaking. The color of the water and the beach on one side was phenomenal and the houses were fun to look at and dream about. We would do this again!

If you can find a parking space I can't think of a much more scenic location to watch a sunset. Sadly there are no bars or restaurants from which to observe.

Every block has the nicest landscaping and varied architecture. Things bloom beautifully in Carmel and each home is stylized to perfection. Amazing they have so many owners on the same page for classy looking homes.

We walked the whole length. It was fun to look at the many houses on one side and the Pacific on the other. What is fascinating is that the houses take up every inch of their property...

The lucky folks that live here in Carmel probably have ties to the Hippy days, when property was a lot cheaper than it is now. The walk is strong, with a sense of the sea up your nostrils and in your step. You will light hearted, young and want to grow your hair long, wear cheescloth skirts and listen to... More

Traffic has to go very slowly so no problems there and at every turn a new view, it could hardly be better.
