“If in Carmel make sure you see it.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

Right at the end of Ocean street and very scenic, can go for a walk along beach area and there is a great view of the Ocean hole at Pebble Beach. Can spend as little as a few minutes or walk and stroll as long as you want.

“Great little find in Carmel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

You can access the beach from a road end at the south side of town. Look for the beach access sign, and drive around to the end. Nice walkway, and uncrowded beach area perfect for walking and picnicking.

“Lovely West coast beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

The sandy beach is large so you'll be able to find your own space. Most people were gathered near the parking lot on Ocean Ave, which also has bathrooms. The further you walk, the less people you will see. Make sure you bring warm clothing, especially if you watch the sunset, as the temperature seems to drop quickly with the sun.

“Carmel Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

Great place to spend a few hours in the afternoon. Sand pebbles are very large...apparently this is why the golf course is named pebble beach.
