We stopped here for an hour before heading to San Fran. The walk round to Lovers point is beautiful, looking out over the bay and towards the sea. Walking on the rocks of the point is fab, we had fun walking in and around taking lots of photos as we went. We managed to get to the small beach and... More

Visiting Monterey Bay and its adjacent scenic spots, we never skipped Lovers Point, which is only minutes of drive from Cannery Row and the Aquarium. There are fine beaches on its both sides. Though very very kids played in the water while we were there, I saw at least five surfers enjoying themselves in the water by the rocks. The... More

Fantastic beach, small little cove with a place to hire wet suits, kayaks, paddle boards etc. Little cafe above the beach serves simple beach food, very friendly and fast service.

To us, Lovers Point is one of the most romantic places to go in Pacific Grove. Its ocean front and its beautiful. When it is sunny, we like to take a walk. When its rainy and stormy, its fun to watch the turbulent wave action on the water. It is also a popular scuba diving and kayaking spot. We also... More

I always go here when I walk on the waterfront. Really great park right on the water where you can usually see sea lions and otters. I saw both.

A great beach to explore We enjoyed walking from here to the light house about a 1.2 mile walk along the coast ' You can also rent a bike to do the same thing. Driving you would miss the see life.

A great way to end the evening - Lots of parking on the street, walking paths, great views of lots of seabirds and some fishing boats anchoring for the evening. Very peaceful, we sat in the car and watched the boats coming in, beautiful sunset, lots of birds, and then the stars came out. Peaceful.
