Lovers Point has been a historic center if local activity going back at least to the very early 1900's. The beach, the old concrete pier. the grassy area at the center and the rocky area out at the point offer different environments for different people. The main beach itself is well protected from large waves and singularly is one of... More

This is just a quaint spot to sit and enjoy company of friends and lovers. It a nice little grassy area, and usually not too terribly busy either. This spot isn't the reason you come to Pacific Grove, but it's a good place to stop by if you're already here.

We went on a Sunday of a race, a bit crowded but I am sure that is an exception. Great views, and nice walk to it too.

It is a must go to for taking in the ocean view. can walk or drive. Yes.... I enjoy it there. Feast of the Lanterns in July at sunset is unique and worth attending. Close to downtown Pacific Grove with great little shops and fabulous food. The Little Red House is affordable little pricey but well worth quality food and... More

Nice spot to enjoy a breeze, the sun glistening off of the ocean, and the sound of waves. We coffee and strolled around nibbling on our pastries from Pavel's Backerei. The gulls are quite funny in how gangs will follow you, but it's a relaxing stroll or stop. Ten minutes will rejuvenate you.

This is a really nice little beach, small grassy park, or place to view the sea lions. This is a good spot to start your walk on the great bike/pedestrian path into Monterey. There is even a parking lot, yeah!

Visiting during the recent storms California experienced in December we walked in misty rain, hand-in-hand, experiencing the joy and presence of God and in our lives. We marveled at the raging waves hitting the rocks and the bravery of the surfers challenging that might. Flowers in bloom thriving now from the welcome moisture needed to survive and show their beauty.... More

This beach was one of our kids' (3 & 6 years) favorite part of or trip down the west coast. It was a nice small little beach. Barely any waves, pretty warm water...a food stand to get hot dogs, snacks, ice cream right there...bathrooms. We rented kayaks on the beach..and the kids got to see seals, etc... out in the...
