“Beautiful Sounds”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

The soft sounds of the surf across the street from the Moonstone Beach motels is music for relaxation. The miles long board walk along the shore is so beautiful with wild flowers, butterflies, seals and sea otters and surf splashed rocks all within a stroll along the cliffs.

“Seals, Sunsets and fresh air”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Right in front of our hotel. Long boardwalk for evening (or any time) strolls. This is a seal rookery and pretty up close and personal. Of course you should not approach but it is facinating

A beautiful stop in Cambria. The beach has tons of rocks my kids really enjoyed climbing and we all walked along the boardwalk to take in the amazing views.

“Fun Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

We enjoyed searching for Moonstones and playing in the surf. There is a little tar on the beach, but that is natural for this area.
