Nice place to seat, watch the ocean or kids jumping into the water. Rocks to walk across. Grass area with places to have a nice lunch. Walk along the shore. Very nice place

There are numerous benches for you to sit on to enjoy the ocean. There is also a small beach to get your toes wet. Also located in this location is a bike/surrey rental to explore the area if walking is not your thing.

With warm weather in October, this area has a pool and protected beach; nice roomy lawn area with BBQs. Also, great new restaurant with views.

Pretty park with a nice view of the water and the peninsula. Really nice to see the interesting rock formations.

If there is sun anywhere in Pacific Grove, it will be at this beach. Especially nice for families with small children. Great place for adults to get a sun tan and enjoy the fabulous view. I live nearby and never get tired of the setting!

No finer view on a clear sunny day than Monterey Bay with kelp forests, seabirds, and the occasional sea otter or sea lion.

Great view, great staff, fantastic food. Loved the experience of walking the point, then easing in for a bite to relax. Just loved it.

Let me start by saying that I've just moved to Pacific Grove, CA and the honeymoon is not over and what I've experienced so far leads me to believe it will last forever. Given that, let me say that Lover's Point is a place along the winding and very scenic Monterey Bay coastline from which you can bask on the... More

We had rented a house a few blocks from Lovers Point. Loved getting up early and walking along the coast. Could have been so much better because the weekend we were there there was an event and much of the trail was blocked off. But still if we were up early we got through it. If you like otters and...

This is more like a dated motel, thin walls, many coats of paint, very tiny bathroom, and maybe not the cleanest of rooms. Although continental breakfast is included , I would plan for a breakfast some where else. But saying all this, the location is spectacular. It is walking distance to the little boutique restaurants and shops in Pacific Grove... More
