We spent a few minutes walking along the shore path almost every day. We always saw a variety of wildlife -- sea lions, otters, seals, lots of birds -- and interesting flowers and succulents. It's hard-packed dirt/fine gravel/occasionally paved surface, and a fairly flat track for walking or jogging.

There is a recreational Trail running parallel to the Blvd. It extends into Sunset Dr in the West and Cannery Row in Monterey. Close to sun set it gets very busy and there are cars parked, were they can to watch the beautiful sun sets.

We roamed around the Pacific Grove coast area while driving through to San Francisco and just had to stop, it was a really nice spot and very nice (the fact that it was sunny day also helped)! I would love to retire to this place..

Yes, this attraction is not as diverse as "Point Lobos" I already reviewed but it is free. Moreover, you can easily stopped at many view points as you like. Another selling point is to take pictures of wildflowers at "Lover's point" although it was a bit early now.

Pleasant drive along the waterfront from Cannery Row around Lovers Point and Point Pinos, past the lighthouse and around to the Asilomar, where the road becomes Sunset Drive.

The boulevard walk is definitely worthwhile. The ocean views are excellent and it is also possible to appreciate to appreciate some of the architecture that distinguishes Pacific Grove.

Wonderful piece of coast line at the southern end of the Monterey Peninsula, away from most of the hustle and bustle of Monterey. Start at Lovers Point and walk as far as you want Asilimar Beach is a great place to turn and head back home. They are plenty of benches to rest and take in the magnificent views and... More

Our bed and breakfast looks over the boulevard and as I am sitting right now, I ear the waves breaking and the quiet of the seashore. Great walking!

Ocean view Blvd in Pacific Grove has the best beauty and use for the Monterey Bay. It is uncluttered and natural compared to the Cannery Row tourist area and business sections along the Northern part. When the tide is out, there are many stone staircases down to the wet sand where you can bring little guys to inspect hermit crabs... More

If you're paying a visit to the Monterey Penineula, be sure to take the drive around Lover's Point and Oceanview. You can do it in a few minutes or linger all day -- however much time you have. Either way, you'll find the ocean, rocks, waves and general ambiance unforgetable. And it's free.
