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.

We stayed right by Lovers Point so it was very convenient. Great for walking by in the morning. It is a small park and not much to do there except take a picture. If you are nearby the boardwalk is a great place to walk and so it could be a destination. Don't think it would be worth making a... More

Lover's Point is a rocky outcropping on Monterey Bay that is strikingly beautiful. It is a very popular location for weddings. There is also a wonderful (and popular) intimate beach here. You can rent surreys here for rides up and down the beach walk (you can ride almost 6 miles through Monterey to Seaside. You can also rent kayaks, (we... More

Nice park for a picnic or try the new Beach House restaurant. Great spot for pictures. This is an historic area for the people of Pacific Grove. Weather permitting there is also a great beach for kids to try out the water.

What a romantic place! We went with our whole family, but I would love to return with just my husband and I. I found this area to be calm and inviting. While there were many people around, we didn't feel bothered. It was a pleasant place and a great spot for pictures. My sons also really enjoyed climbing all the... More

Managed to make it to lovers point with the wildflowers in bloom! Just an array of beauty! Beautiful scenery, clean and peaceful. It's worth enjoying the view on a bench and contemplating the meaning of life for a few minutes :)
