This is our favorite place to go on the Peninsula! My husband and I love to get a hot cup of Starbuck's or something to snack on and we go and watch the waves roll in and out! You can walk around on the rocks or watch other people feed the squirrels. Don't you feed them! Lots of fat little... More

Don't spend the money to go down 17 mile drive to Pebble Beach, Oceanview is better and more beautiful!!

Just in awe of this road. So much to see from the car and plenty of places to stop. Great, great views and charming in every respect. Some of the best coastal scenery ever!

Pacific Grove has the most scenic coast line drive of any city in the country. We have driven in all 50 states and covered ocean drives where they exist. The unique thing about the Pacific Grove shoreline is that there are no houses between the road and the ocean. In addition, in the spring, the ice plant blooms a bright... More

Ok disclosure, I live off of Oceanview Boulevard. In my opinion one of the most beautiful walks in California. On a clear day you can see otters, seals, sea-lions, dolphins and whales. I never get tired of the view! Walk the trail or bike to restaurants, shopping, Pacific Grove Golf Course, and the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Fall in love like... More

Oceanview Blvd. is just that, a great two lane Boulevard that meanders along parallel to Monterey Bay. The views are spectacular, with two hour parking along the way, so you can stop to snap pictures. It does get crowded on the weekends, holidays and summertime but you don't want to be in a hurry anyway as you cruise along and... More

Small intimate shell shaped white sand beaches, 30 ft cliffs with the waves lapping at their edge, walking and biking paths that run 17 miles south and 17 mile north, waves hitting the rocky coastline and spewing 30 feet into the air, water that can be grey, aqua marine, deep navy blue, otters, seals, dolphins, whales, seagulls, pelicans, great white...

We spent 4 nights in Pacific Grove and spent one whole day walking along the waterfront from the Beach Inn southwards. We had an amazing time watching seals, porpoise, sea otters, lots of birds and dozens of humpback whales. If you drive along here, or even cycle, you will see the lovely views but you will miss all the wildlife,... More

This roadway not only has beautiful views of the ocean but it goes for miles with lots of turnoffs so that you can get out of your car to enjoy or explore.
