This is the best place with views and if you like to look at really small, really expensive houses, this is the place for you! We started at Ocean Ave and walked both ways then decided to walk to Pebble Beach. That was kind of a long walk but well worth it.

This is a must do when you are in Carmel. Pretty scenic route along the coast with all the nice house and the ocean.

This is one of the most beautiful places to walk. The trails are well maintained and easy. The views of the coast are unbeatable. Plenty of places to explore along the way with nice beaches or rocky crags to explore. You could spend the day just walking this area.

One of the prettiest beaches in America...beautiful crushed granite walkway affords walkers, runners and doggies a gorgeous view at all times of day. My fave is to arrive before sunrise and watch the sun hit the waves as they crest on the beach.

This walk meanders among beautiful homes along the coast with a fine sand beaches and large rocks with crashing waves. We never found a real walkway but followed the road for over 3 miles then walked back into the village. Gorgeous

We stayed close to the walk and it is an excellent way to get your exercise while on vacation. The homes are lovely to look at and the ocean and sea air are invigorating.

Have walked this for many years and always find the view fascinating. The different colors of the water as the light changes! Fabulous sunsets. Waves crashing against the rocks! Amazingly beautiful homes! What's not to like?!

Taking the coastal drive on the 1 and through Big Sur is a must. Stop and have lunch or dinner at Nepenthe Restaurant, beautiful view of the land, mountain and ocean. See the trail and waterfall at Julia Pheiffer Park. Just stop and enjoy the beauty.

On one side you have the majestic Pacific ocean and on the other, fabulous homes. What's not to like?

A truly scenic place to take your morning or evening stroll. Have visited Carmel many times over the years and we love to take our walks here. Bathroom facilities are at beach area.
