So fun to walk (or drive) along the carmel front road and see all of the adorable houses and pretty beach. In fact, the homes are so amazing, at one point we forgot about the beach.

Just a real nice relaxing place to walk around Carmel at the end of the day. Watched all the people gathered at the beach, very enjoyable stroll.

You follow easily along the side of the ocean. You can stop for taking pictures at your own speed and you do not pay like for the 17mile drive

Great walk from one end of town to the other. Take a different street each day and see the beautiful flowers and precious bungalows.

It's just simply so pleasant to walk here. Wish we could do it more often, daily would be good! It is a very enjoyable way to walk.

You will want to be a passenger during this drive and have your camera ready! The gorgeous blue water crashing on the rocks makes driving difficult because all you want to do is look out over the vast beautiful landscape, houses and water in the Monterey Bay!

I love this drive and walk because it is not only free, but it is much better than 17 mile drive in my opinion. I would definitely come back here anyway of the week because of how beautiful it is and it is a good exercise. I would recommend parking on scenic and just walk till you can and turn... More

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.
