Really a nice walk along the coast and within a nice neighborhood. Lots of pretty yards on one side and the rocky shore on the other. It starts at a great beach and ends at another, depending on which direction you choose. It is nice to end up at Carmel Beach and then continue thru town. As always, parking is... More

We do this walk from Ocean Avenue to Carmel River Beach every day when we stay in Carmel and of course never get tired of it. The beauty is really beyond words. On one of the days this year the air was so clear that the water color was many magnificent shades of blue even more blue than I remembered.... More

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
