“Beautiful beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2014

Sand is powdery; views of the ocean are stunning. Lot's of people/dog watching. Parkin was surprising easy at 11:00 on a Sunday in January when the weather forecast was 85 degrees. Walk up Ocean for shopping & lunch (good for able bodied only).
Very nice & laid back.

“Sunsets at the Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

Never hesitate to run on the beach in the morning or do a photo op at sunset...an easy distance from anywhere in Carmel.

A great place to catch the sunset with a bottle of wine. Plan early to get a parking spot. Clean restrooms available.

“Beautiful huge beach, fun.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014

Best beach in area, parking difficult but worth the short walk from town. Great for walking. Views of Pebble Beach are spectacular.
