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.

Very charming trails to walk on and enjoy the beach without being in the sand , if you don't want to walk on the beach.

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.

What's not to love about seeing unique, cozy homes that face the ocean, aside from the price? We rode bikes along the Scenic Road. It was a good change of pace since the road into/out of Carmel from 17 Mile Drive is tough. There are a few places along the road with park benches. We had packed food & enjoyed... More

We have walked the beach on 17 Mile Drive several times, and always enjoyed it. We had less time this trip, and decided to walk all of Scenic Drive. Loved seeing all the beautiful and unusual house on one side of the street, and the Pacific Ocean on the other side.

Funny, we always walk down Ocean Avenue to visit the beach when we're in Carmel. This is our first time walking along Scenic Road. It was a nice residential walk along the beach. You walk along a paved side walk. When we went (Columbus holiday weekend), it was a bit busy. However, this didn't take away from us enjoying ourselves.
